Jing'an Temple

Hotels near Jing'an Temple, Shanghai, China .

It is interesting, odd if you will, to see the surroundings of Jing’an Temple in completely modern and high-end stature. Being one of the ancient temples in Shanghai, China built in 247 AD, this shrine sticks like an odd man out in its location, Nanjing Road (West).

The area is a haven of high-end shopping and other modern-day recreational pursuits. Jing’an temple has survived century after century, defying the ravages of war and revolts. It stood originally beside Suzhou Creek but was transferred to its present site during the Song dynasty. Today, the reconstructed structure stands proud amid reminders of modern and hip Shanghai.

Getting to Jiang’an Temple is not difficult as it has its own subway stop on Line 2. Alighting from the station would lead one to boutiques, shopping malls and fastfood restaurants. As such the commercial chatter creates a raucous combination with the sight and smell of joss sticks lit up inside the temple.

Yuyuan Road, Middle Yan’nan Road, Jing’an Park and the Shanghai Children’s Palace are near Jiang’an Temple. Admission fees to the shrine are at RMB20 and operating hours are between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m.
