Longhua Temple & Jade Buddha
Longhua Temple is the largest in the city. Its seven-storey brick pagoda with wooden steps was once the tallest building in the city before Shanghai entered its modern era and started building skyscrapers. The Jade Buddha Temple was built in 1882 to house two jade statues of Buddha from Burma, one seated and the other reclining, at the end of his life. These two statues are accompanied by another made of marble, again of a reclining Buddha, donated by Singapore.
