Closest subway station: Changshou road (line 7) + ~10-15mins walk.
What to expect- Quite a gorgeous temple!
It is a very short visit though (About 30mins or so).
It is quite close to another temple (Jing’an temple).
I rode a bike from Jade temple to the other.
I’d recommend visit both on the same day.
I’d say it’s a fun visit but not a “must”.
If you have time, go for it!
