Jade Buddha Temple, Shanghai Overview

The Jade Buddha Temple is home to two stunning white jade Buddha statues which were brought into the country in the late 19th century.

One of Shanghai's most visited tourist attraction, the temple was built in 1928, after the old temple housing the statues was destroyed in the revolution. The two statues portray the Buddha in two positions. One in which he is sitting, meant to depict his time in medidation and achieving enlightenment. This statue is approximatey 2 metres tall. The second statue is of a reclined Buddha, symbolising his death and final resting, which is around 1 metre long. Other points of interest in the temple include the Grand Hall, which houses many spectacular statues as well.
