Jing’an Temple

After lunch in Puxi, we headed towards the bookstores, until this caught my eye…

Jing’an Temple, “Temple of Peace and Tranquility.” What can I say? I’m a sucker for historical buildings. The current temple was rebuilt during the Qing Dynasty (1644-1912). We paid our 60RMB entrance fee and were allowed inside.

I was told by the ticket salesperson that photos were allowed, in case you think I’m some sacrilegious lout.

Forgive the blurry photo, but it’s not every day you see a Buddhist monk reading a newspaper…unless you live in China, of course.

We never made it to the bookstore. That can wait for another day. We headed back to Pudong to pick up The Kid and Miss M from school. It was a tranquil ending to a Rabbit’s day.
