Shanghai Jade Buddha Temple and Silk factory visit

Jade Buddha Temple has two Jade Buddhas from Burma in 1882
but no photos are allowed to take 

Happy Buddha 

These scary looking figures are to protect the temple from evil spirits 

People donate their money to the temple by purchasing 
these roof tile with inscription of their names on 

Our tour guide lead us to a Silk factory 

The silk store guide was showing us how a larva becomes a cocoon 

and how they get a silk thread from cocoons 

Showing off how strong silk inlay is for quilt.

Few people in our group actually bought 
pillow cases, quilt cover,
scarf and shirts all made of silk.
