Longhua Temple

The Longhua Temple is noted for being the oldest temple in Shanghai, with a colourful history that spans for more than 1700 years. The temple has been damaged a number of times due to war, and most of its buildings were rebuilt during the reign of the Qing Dynasty by Emperors Tongzhi and Guangzu. The Longhua Temple was constructed in such a way that is reflects traditional Buddhist symbolism and symmetry, which can be seen in the presence of bell chimes and Buddhist figurines, as well as the Longhua Pagoda in its vicinity.

  • Despite not being open to visitors in Shanghai due to its fragility, the Longhua Pagoda is still a major attraction here, and consists of a unique octagonal structure that has seven levels decorated with bells on its eaves.
  • Come and explore the Grand Hall of the Longhua Temple in Shanghai, and view the masterpiece of Buddha amid 18 disciple figurines on either side.
  • Experience the Three Sage hall of the Longhua Temple, where three Buddha incarnations are seated in a swirled red and gold dome.
