Jing'an Temple






JING'AN - Jing'an Temple


Situated in the center of one of the city's most prosperous neighborhoods, Jing'an Temple is such an eye-ball catching heritage architecture that even a bunch of shiny glass and concrete modern towers can't overwhelm its glittering glory.

The temple has been around in at least some form for nearly two millennia. Its first incarnation was built near the banks of Suzhou Creek in AD 247 during the Warring States Period. It was finally relocated to its current position in 1216 under the Song Dynasty.

It was destroyed and rebuilt several times over several centuries. During the Cultural Revolution, the temple was converted into a plastics factory, and it wasn't until 1983 when Deng Xiaoping's reforms permitted it to re-open for religious purposes.

Today it is one of the most prestigious temples in the city. Locals like to go there to pray for wealth, success, and high exam scores.

Access to Jing'an temple can be easy by metro line 2 or line 7 at Jing'an Temple Station.
