  As the Chinese Goddess of the Sea, there are thousands of temples and statues built in her honor up and down the eastern seaboard. She is revered among seamen as a healer of the sick and a saver of lives. As a major port city in China, Tianjin every autumn holds a festival in Mazu's honor. People gather at the Tianhou Temple to pay their respects of the Goddess, and the festivities continue for 14 days.
