Jade Buddha Temple - Shanghai China

Standing amidst the modern architecture of west Shanghai is the traditionally built Jade Buddha Temple. Initially the temple was constructed in 1882 at some other location. The two Buddha statues in this temple had been brought from Burma, by a by a monk named Huigen. This old temple was destroyed during the revolutionary wars that marked the end of the Qing Dynasty’s rule. Fortunately the statues were not harmed and a new temple, named the Jade Buddha Temple was built in 1928 to keep them. The temple has been named so because the statues placed there are made completely in white jade.

 

One statue is of the Sitting Buddha while the other shows him in a recumbent position. These porcelain artworks are important relics for the people of China. Apart from these two statues, there are some other ancient effigies, paintings and scriptures adorning this temple that are of immense cultural value. During your visit, you will experience a sense of calmness and transcendence, irrespective of whether you are a Buddhist or not. Entry to the temple requires you to pay a fee and some extra charges if you wish to see the Jade Statues. Spare about an hour to visit this place.
