Description

Originally built in 1882, the Jade Buddha Temple lies approximately 3.5 km northwest of the city. It houses two jade statues of Buddha that Monk Huigen brought back from his travels to Burma. These two rare cultural relics are exemplary specimens of porcelain and white jade artistry.

The Sitting Buddha measures 190 cm tall and portrays a meditating Buddha, while the Recumbent (Lucky Pose) Buddha is 96 cm long. The temple walls are covered with ancient paintings; and visitors can see more than 7,000 Buddhist Sanskrit in the temple's many halls.

Visitors interested in tasting a vegetarian meal can stop off at the temple's famous Vegetarian Restaurant, where residing monks moonlight as chefs.
