Jade Buddha Temple
The original Jade Buddha Temple was built in the late-19th century to house two statues brought from Burma by a monk named Hui Gen. They remain the temple's principal attractions—especially the larger of the two, a seated Buddha carved from a single piece of white jade and weighing 205 kilograms (452 pounds). This is an active Buddhist monastery, and you’ll see monks going about their daily business,  as well as locals who come here to worship. The complex has gone through cycles of destruction and repair, first during the uprising that led to the overthrow of the Qing dynasty, and later during the Cultural Revolution. There is also a popular vegetarian restaurant at the temple.
