One of the prettiest and biggest buddhist temples in Shanghai, and I used to live opposite it in my first house in Shanghai back in 2002. It was originally named Hudu Chongyuan, today’s name Jing An comes from the district it’s located in, Jing An. In 1972 it was burnt down, and was then reconstructed and opened up to the public again in 1990. It then had a total make over again that took several years and was completed in 2010. Today it is a very grand a peaceful place to visit. I especially like to visit the temple in the mornings. People are praying, singing and even if I am not a buddhist I feel very happy and calm every time I had a visit here in the morning.
My favourite cocktail in Shanghai is Basil Drops at Sichuan Citizen. This is my version of it! I hope you will like it as much as I do!
