| 136 Episodes
The Langhua Pagoda stands in front of the temple entrance and is the only remaining old pagoda in the city of Shanghai. The aged seven wooden stories are not open to visitors, however it remains an impressive sight. The Longhua Temple is one of the oldest, largest and certainly more peaceful of all temples in Shanghai. First built around 242 AD, it's been destroyed and rebuilt many times over the centuries. The current temple and monastery follow designs of the Song dynasty. The 10 yuan entrance fee provides access to the beautiful and peaceful grounds. Next door is the large landscaped grounds of the Martyrs Cemetery. Entrance to the grounds and the museum filled with fotos and the personal effects of young Communists martyrs is free.
