The Jade Buddha Temple houses two exquisite Buddha statues — a White Burmese Jade reclining Buddha (photo top right) and a giant Jade Buddha statue seated cross-legged (sorry, no photos were allowed).

The temple also houses a complete set of Buddhist scripture — the Da Zhang Sutra — printed in the Qing Dynasty about 200 years ago.

Arrange for a Customized Group Tour of the Jade Buddha Temple — it's quite fascinating.
