Located on West Nanjing Road, Jing’an Temple is one of the most renowned temples in Shanghai. According to legend, it was built during the Three Kingdoms Period (220-280 AD) and named Huduchongyuan Temple. In 1008, it was renamed as Jing’an Temple. In 1216, the temple was moved to its present location.

According to Shouning, a monk as well as a poet in the Yuan Dynasty, there were “Eight Scenes” in the temple. Sadly, most of them no longer exist. However, the Estavel (Yong Quan) was excavated in 2009. It was famed as the “Sixth Spring under Heaven”. The spring was reconstructed at the crossing of West Nanjing Road and Huashan Road.
