The Jade Buddha Temple, Shanghai

The Jade Buddha Temple was founded in 1882 with two jade Buddha statues imported to Shanghai by sea from Burma.


These two Buddhas were a sitting Buddha (1.95 meters tall), and a smaller reclining Buddha, representing Buddha's death. The temple now also contains a much larger reclining Buddha made of marble, that was donated from Singapore.
