Qinglong temple and tower are located in Qinglong village, white crane. The temple was built in the second year of Tianbao in Tang Dynasty (743). It was first named Baode temple and renamed longfu temple in Song Dynasty. In the fifty fourth year of Kangxi (1715), the emperor made a tour in the south, passing through Qinglong. He wrote about "Jingyan Shouxiang" and named the temple "Jiyun Temple". He also gave a crystal Avalokitesvara, a lotus splashed gold fan and a apricot cassock, which was called "three treasures". According to Qingpu County annals published by Guangxu, Qinglong temple covers an area of more than 60 mu, with a temple field of more than 450 mu. It has magnificent buildings, such as the Mahavira hall, the underground storage hall, the Weituo hall, the Zen hall, the Zhai hall, the Yixiu hall, the Qixie hall, the wenjue hall, the Chenghuai hall, the Abbot's room, the East and west sides, the Xiangji kitchen, the storehouse, and the Putong tower. The sound of bells and drums is endless, and the sound of fanbei is Dadan, which has the reputation of "Buddha horn is the world's leader". In the third year of Jiaqing (1798), there was a fire and Chongge hall was in ruins. In the early years of Daoguang, monks built temples. In the tenth year of Xianfeng (1860), the temple house was destroyed by the war again. In the 25th year of the Republic of China (1936), monks recruited to build Guanyin Pavilion and a bell, which are now abandoned. There are only two inscriptions left: (1) the inscription of Qinglong longfu temple. (2) the inscription on the reconstruction of the main hall of Jiyun temple.

Qinglong pagoda was built in the year of Changqing (821-824), formerly known as longfu Temple Pagoda, also known as Qinglong wild goose pagoda, commonly known as Qinglong pagoda, seven levels and eight sides, brick and wood structure. The temple and pagoda were rebuilt in Kangding and Qing Dynasties. In the third year of Dade (1299), Zhihe (1308) and Zhizheng (1343), Ren Renfa, a calligrapher and painter from Qingpu, an expert in water conservancy, Ren Xiande, his son, and sun renshizhi successively contributed to the repair of temples and towers. In 1644, Zhu Mingjing, a native of the city, built the pagoda. In 1648, in the fifth year of Shunzhi period in the Qing Dynasty, monks were once again rejuvenated. Up to now, it has been in disrepair for more than 300 years, the stairs have been destroyed, the waist eaves have not been preserved, and the tower body is inclined, which is in danger. In 1956, the copper gourd on the top of the tower was blown down by a typhoon, with the words "the 17th year of Chongzhen in the Ming Dynasty" on it. It is now collected in Qingpu District Museum. In 1992, the tower body deviated from the center by 1.56 meters. Professor Cao Shizhong, a famous architectural rectification expert, was specially invited by Shanghai Municipal Commission of cultural relics to support it. Temples and pagodas were listed as county-level and municipal cultural relics protection units in 1959 and 1960 respectively.


Qinglong temple and tower are municipal cultural relics protection units.
