City God Temple

Chenghuangmiao (City God Temple), located in an eponymous tourist-centric zone, is Shanghai’s most important Taoist temple. It has stood there for nearly six centuries since it was built in Ming dynasty’s Yongle period (1403-1424). Numerous halls are spread out in an area of about 2,000 square meters.

Mid-Lake Pavilion Teahouse

Mid-Lake Pavilion Teahouse within Chenghuangmiao is an attraction in its own right. If you want to take the load off your feet while visiting Chenghuangmiao, you cannot go wrong with it. Tea goes well with dried beancurd, quail eggs and sticky rice in bamboo shoots, to name a few. Sip a cup of tea, with people going in both direction on Jiuqu Bridge (Nine-Curve Bridge), massive tree canopy and double eaves for company. You could be lost in thought.

Nine Bend Bridge

Jiuqu Bridge (Nine-Curve Bridge) paved with granite slabs makes 18 bends while zigzagging its way within Chenghuangmiao, with each bend engraved with a seasonal flower. The bridge leads all the way to Mid-Lake Pavilion Teahouse.
