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.

  • Not far from the port in Sanya. People's Republic of China featuring the temple buildings, colorful yarn. Next to the sea with the appreciation they wish to do. It is a relatively small shrines. It's a good idea to walk quietly and don't have a lot of people.

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

  • Nice and calm in this place. Many interesting details-sculptures and plants. Better to come for the whole day.
