Mazu Temple of Sanya, Sanya

3.8
#3 of 6 in Historic Sites in Sanya
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 just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our international travel planner, Sanya Edition.

  • Temple adorned with dazzling colors, from the port, walk maybe. A convenient pay tourist car ride and stops in front of the gate.

Where to stay in Sanya

A popular beach resort, Sanya's premier places to stay all crowd as close to the beach as possible. Luxury hotels with abundant grounds, large pools, and fine-dining restaurants can be found on the main beach road, along with a scattered few standard options. Budget-conscious travelers will be relieved to find a good number of small inns and hotels located in the alleys and side streets just back from the main beach road. Take a look around the coastline for a number of clusters of upmarket hotels in more secluded bays, usually occupying large plots by the sea.
