Shanghai Jade Buddha Temple

I visited Shanghai for Chinese New Year Day in 2012. People were praying, burning incense, throwing coins for good luck charm and saying “新年快乐” (Happy New Years) to each other at the temple.  At night, there were fireworks everywhere. The streets were filled with ashes from the fireworks!
