Jade Buddha Temple

Hotels near Jade Buddha Temple, Shanghai, China .

Tourists who troop to the Jade Buddha Temple in Shanghai, China stare in awe at the two Buddhas holding fort inside the Song Dynasty style quarters. Built in 1882, the Jade Buddha Temple is a fully functioning monastery located in Putuo district.

Jade Buddha Temple boasts two beautiful Buddha statues, originating from Burma, finely crafted from white jade. The seated Buddha, rising to a height of 1.9 meters and weighing 205 kg, is the more impressive one with semi-precious stones integrated into the sculpture. Smaller and more serene in appearance, the reclining Buddha figure rests on a redwood bed and is about 1 meter in length.

More Buddha statues and other deities are found throughout the temple. It is worthwhile to mention that photography is strictly prohibited in the Jade Buddha chamber, which requires a separate entrance fee of RMB10.

Jade Buddha Temple receives visitors daily from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Entrance fee is priced at RMB20. Nearby hotels include Jin Sha Hotel Jin Jiang, Ryden Yage Hotel, Shanghai JC and URBN Hotels Shanghai.
