In among all the skyscrapers and apartment buildings, a tiny part of “Old Shanghai” remains. In it there are remnants of the old city wall dating back to the Ming Dynasty (1553) as well as pavilions, temples, and markets. On one of our days in Shanghai, we had the opportunity to explore a small part of it.
Dajing Ge Pavilion is built right into the old city wall. Inside is a small temple and a museum about the old city of Shanghai.
The Baiyun Guan Temple is right down the street from the Dajing Ge Pavilion. This is a Taoist temple also known as the “White Cloud Temple”. There are two floors with several small areas in each with statues of various deities.
