An active Buddhist monastery, Jade Buddha Temple contains many rare cultural relics and works of art. As you enter the peaceful Grand Hall, notice many different statues adorned by precious metals. For a symbolic fee, you can enter the temple's northern section to observe the main attraction, two jade statues of Buddha--a sitting and a recumbent one--each decorated with emeralds and agates. At the temple's eastern end, you can find a restaurant serving tasty local dishes for a moderate price.

  • You are surrounded by history and beauty here. Multiple buildings with multiple Buddhas, two of which are carved from single (giant) pieces of jade. Tourists mingle with observant Buddhists and Monks.

  • The temple is built in the style of the Song Dynasty, with symmetrical halls and courtyards, upturned eaves, and bright yellow walls. Though an active Buddhist monastery today, the real emphasis at Shanghai's most popular temple is squarely on tourism. Inside the Jade Buddha Temple, follow the right-hand corridor past the Hall of Heavenly Kings and the Guanyin Hall to arrive at the Jade Buddha Hall
  • Very nice looking Mahatma gotam buddhay Temple and happiness pic
