Ties between India and China go back thousands of years, from the use of the Silk Road as a major trade route to the spread of Buddhism from India to East Asia. Given the two countries' intertwined histories, it's no wonder there's plenty of Indian culture to be found in China, and especially in a major city like Shanghai.
