Jade Buddha Temple
tips and insights

Active temple

The Jade Buddha Temple is a working place of worship, not just a tourist destination. You will see monks performing ceremonies and worshipers burning bundles of incense sticks.

Construction history

The temple was built in 1882 to house the jade Buddhas, but was destroyed in 1911, then rebuilt in 1918.

The reconstruction was done in the very photogenic architectural style of the Song Dynasty (960-1279).

Sacred scriptures

A complete set of sacred ancient Buddhist scriptures are stored next to the seated jade Buddha.
