About Shanghai Old City
The Old City area of Shanghai, once surrounded by defensive walls, is the main tourist attraction in Shanghai. The Old City of Shanghai was established in the 11th Century, whilst the rest of Shanghai beyond the Old City developed from the mid 19th Century onward during a period where foreign countries where permitted to operate in China. The Old City is the one part of Shanghai which developed independently of foreign influence.
The major attractions to see in Shanghai Old City include:
- The Temple of the City Gods: The largest temple in the Old City established in 1403. Originally a temple devoted to the Gods of Chinese folk religion the temple was transformed into a mainstream Taoist temple in the 1950s.
- Old City Wall: A small part of the city’s defensive wall remains intact as does one of the gates, the Dajing Tower.
- Yuyuan Garden: A traditional Ming style private garden with pavilions, gardens, lake, bridge and tea house.
- Chenxiang Ge Temple: Established in 1600 as a Buddhist nunnery, this temple has multiple structures spread over an area of more than 2,000 square metres.
- Wenmiao Temple: Wenmiao Temple is Shanghai’s Confucian Temple founded during the Yuan Dynasty (1271 to 1368) and also the location of Shanghai’s largest book fair.
- Baiyun Guan Temple: One of two temples in China with a copy of the Ming era Taoist scriptures.
