Jade Buddha Temple

Situated in the western part of Shanghai, the Jade Buddha Temple (Chinese name is 玉佛禅寺) is a Buddhist temple and was first built in 1882. It is famous for housing the two pieces of Jade Buddha imported from Burma – one is the sitting Jade Buddha with 1.95 meters tall, and the other reclining Jade Buddha with 0.96 meters tall.
