"Jade Buddha Temple" Jade Buddha Temple Tip by Willettsworld

Jade Buddha Temple, Shanghai: 25 reviews and 56 photos

In 1882, an old temple was built to keep two jade Buddha statues which had been brought from Burma by a monk named Huigen. The temple was destroyed during the revolution that overthrew the Qing Dynasty. Fortunately the jade Buddha statues were saved and a new temple was built on the present site in 1928 and named after the jade statues. Although the history of the Jade Buddha Temple is not very long, the old-time and classical architectural style makes the temple unique and well worth a visit.
