Description

Yufo Si is a Buddhist group that operates - one of the few in China. Two figures introduced to Shanghai in the 19th century by a Burmese monk are the star attractions. The sitting Buddha, a 1.9 m (6.5 ft) giant encrusted with semi-precious stones, is the most remarkable. Both Buddhas are made out of white jade and are faced with a large stone copy.
