Yesterday, we ventured to the Jade Buddha Temple, one of Shanghai's only active Buddhist monasteries. The temple is famous for two large Buddha figures carved out of solid pieces of jade and transported to Shanghai from Burma. (No photographs are allowed of either, so you won't see them here.) Beyond those, highlights of our visit included witnessing a brief service and a lot of chanting by the monks who live there, being treated to a tea ceremony, and stopping in the on-site vegetarian restaurant. There, we ordered eggplant with vegetarian meat and spicy bean curd with mushrooms and peas. Yum. Definitely a contrast from the football festivities of the night before!
