If you are in Jing'an and are keen to visit a quintessential Chinese temple, then a visit to the Jing'an Temple would be worth it. It wasn't crowded when we went, so enjoyed walking around. Did not need a guide.

It's a small temple. It looks very nice from the outside especially in the night when the lights are on. But if you pay 50RMB to get in, actually it's very small, not much to see. It's a local temple for Shanghainese to pray when...More

We took a walk around the area and thought to visit the temple. When we arrived there we saw that they charge 50 RMB which was a lot in my eyes. The temple is more a tourist spot than a "religious site". If you look...More

Jing’an temple is impressive from a distance but it’s worth a visit for RMB50 per person. The interior structure is mostly wood with very thick wooden pillars. The main hall houses a huge Buddha. The complex is a monastery and you can hear monks chanting.

trendy nightlife areas can be found along West Nanjing
