The temple was built in 247 AD in the Wu Kingdom during the Three Kingdoms period of ancient China. It was then  located beside the Suzhou Creek, it was relocated to its current site in 1216 during the Song Dynasty. The current temple was rebuilt in the Qing Dynasty but, during the Cultural Revolution, the temple was converted into a plastic factory. In 1983, it was returned to its original purpose.

Wo ai Shanghai❤️

This is also my home,I might not live here anymore. But I lived here on and off since 2002. And this is where we started off as a family. Shanghai will always hold a special place in my heart. I am here with a friend this time. And I love to show her all my special places. Yesterday we went all over the town, and of the places were JingAn temple. And the first house we lived in, at Yan An Zhong Lu, where we meet my old neighbor.
