Jade Buddha Tempel Maps & Guide
The Jade Buddha Temple is one the most famous Buddhist temples in Shanghai, founded in 1882 with two Jade Buddha statues imported to Shanghai from Burma by sea, which were a sitting Buddha (1.95 meters tall, 3 tonnes), and a smaller reclining Buddha representing Buddha's death. Besides, the temple now also has a much larger reclining Buddha made of marble, donated from Singapore, and visitors may mistake this larger sculpture for the original, smaller piece.
The two precious jade Buddhist statues are not only rare cultural relics but also porcelain artworks. Both the Sitting Buddha and the Recumbent Buddha are carved with whole white jade. The sparkling and crystal-clear white jade gives the Buddhas the beauty of sanctity and make them more vivid.
