Overview

Not only does this former house of worship rate as the oldest building in Tianjin, but it also grades as the only authentic structure on Ancient Culture Street. Built in 1326 during the Yuan dynasty as a tribute to Empress Tianhou, the goddess of seafarers, it has endured numerous renovations. In 1984, it was finally converted into a museum. Incense altars and statues of “celestial beings” are the interiors more prominent features.
