Photo Friday: Tian Hou Temple

Tian Hou is a sea goddess. Once a mortal, she now protects sailors and fishermen. According to my very brief internet search, the Tian Hou temple in Qingdao was built in 1467 and is still in use today, as a tourist destination if nothing else. The temple grounds were fairly large, with several buildings scattered around and these flags hanging over everything.
