It is an amazing place with beautiful buildings and nice shops to buy souvenirs. There is so much color and lights in this place. We spent about an hour walking in the Chengfuang Temple area at night and it was just wonderful. You can also taste some authentic Chinese food from the little restaurant shops, if you like. Highly recommend the place to visit when in Shanghai.

Actually a nice, quiet temple in a busy watertown. But after realizing you stept into a tourist trap, it left a bitter taste. Just visit the main temple and avoid the doggy fortune teller with the incest sticks, luring you in the building on the side.

The Taoism temple is located at the end corner of the Yu Yuan (Yu Garden). On your way to the temple, you will walk through the Yu Garden and buzzing streets, which full of characteristic buildings, souvenirs shops, food streets, local delicacy etc. The entrance fee to the temple is RMB10 and you get to see different statues of Taoism gods. Yu Yuan is full of people and can be crowded during peak season. It is about 10 minutes walk from the nearest MRT station, Yu Garden (Yuyuan), Line 10.

AVOID the City/Town God Temple in Zhujiajiao!
Once you’re inside you’ll be bulldozed into a dodgy fortune-telling & then asked/expected to donate to the gods for your good fortune (preferably in multiples of ¥100!), before your brain has the change to fully engage in flight-mode and process what a total CON this temple is.

We had walked from the Promenade to this Temple and Market, interesting walk. When we got close the shops had many displays of Lunar New Year Lanterns and Spring Blossoms. We arrived at the Temple Square and great looking displays on buildings for Lunar New Year celebrations .... looks neat. We wandered our way through and I resisted buying nic nacs and went all the way to the Water Gardens then to Starbucks for a warm coffee. The Water gardens in front of the Temple were in full swing of setting up stages for a concert there for the upcoming festival. Then on the way back I succumbed to the retail fever and bought a T-Shirt for myself and a Dragon one at that :) Then at the end of the temple retracing our steps back to the Promenade I again succumbed to spending but on my one-year old grandson - mum hasn't bought him any cars yet!!!! So grandad did, mind you he's only just turned one year old last month :) So I found this neat Shanghai Police Car with sirens and all that .... typical a :) Its a boy thing.
OK reviewing the Temple area and Market - it was great and enjoyed the experience especially if you can see it this time of year.

the temple was restored in 1992 in "mainland" style so.. if you are looking for truly ancient, "authentic" Chinese temple, go elsewhere like Shanxi Wu Tai Terrace where there are plenty.

also the staff would "encourage" you to to light the incense sticks, then "encourage" you to pay a donation. you can simply ignore them or just light the incense sticks

The best bazzar for great bargain to shop. The building itself show how great the architect was. As tourist this is the best place for you to enjoy the best scenery with young local people. Yes there are so many things to shop here and you may feel its not worth to buy. However, be a great tourist by enjoy the scenery around here. Why not just buy one or two souvenir here to help a local people too. Its not too expensive and worth to buy as its quality shown. The best part of Shanghai hidden here and you need to see more when you are here.

Visited but did not go into the temple. Too many tourists, the place seem more for commercial purpose than a temple.

If you have a choice, please avoid this temple. It has nothing worth visiting, and be really careful of the tourist trap.

Went to see a temple but ended up in a tourist market, good place for buying trinkets and gifts for friends and family, pretty busy but a fun experience none the less.
