9th June 2013: Visit of Jing’an District.
Departure: 10.00 am
Return: 7.00 pm
Direction Changshou Road. We walked about 20 minutes before reaching the Jade Buddha Temple (changshou rd). Beautiful temple and visit of the Jade Buddha. A peaceful atmosphere prevails. Good place to go. About 2 hours to do it entirety. In my opinion the Jade Buddha hall is less impressive than the rest of the temple …
At the exit of the temple you can find some small shops, opposite of the temple you will find postcards of Shanghai (very rare in China).
Back to Changshou metro direction to Nanjing Rd W station. The former residence of Mao Zedong is 10-minute walk from the station. Unfortunately, we couldn’t visit it because of the hours (9h-11h and 13h-16.30).
We continued our journey on the luxurious streets of West Nanjing Rd. After 20-30 minutes walk we arrive at the Jing’an Temple. Majestic temple.
For me, one of my favorites because he is large and well maintained (it was rebuilt at 90%).
