City God Temple

Cult site for Tao
The City God Temple is one of the city’s landmarks. This venerable tower, a Tao cult site, rules over Shanghai’s Old Town. It is close to Yu Garden, a very large shopping mall with food stalls, restaurants and tea houses. It’s full and noisy during the day. You can buy anything here: musical instruments, woodwork, combs and sticks of all sizes, jewellery, and all kinds of – stuff. So be sure to allow yourself enough time.
