Recommendation by Lemi

Famous for being the largest and oldest temple in Shanghai, the Longhua Temple is dedicated to the Maitreya Buddha (the future Buddha according to Buddhist eschatology). It is also the most preserved of its kind, retaining its original architectural design of a Song Dynasty monastery. Explore the area’s five halls, which includes the legendary Longhua Pagoda—the tallest edifice within the temple at 40.4 meters in height!
