Mazu Temple of Sanya, Sanya
(3.7/5 based on 100+ reviews on the web)
Among the oldest religious places in the area, Mazu Temple of Sanya was built to commemorate Cangjie, the man who created Chinese writing characters. After the Qing Dinasty's downfall, the place was neglected and abandoned until the local people renovated it, transforming it into a temple. See the colorful building, a memorable example of Chinese architecture, today mostly visited to honor Mazu, protector of sailors and all those who live near the sea.

  • Mazu Temple of Sanya is a small beautiful old temple on the island. A quiet place to retreat. If you are near the drive, you will not regret.
