Walking down the Tianjin ancient culture street almost to its end, we found the Tianhou Palace situated on one side of about 1/6- acre square with an ancient theater on its opposite side. Unlike several "temples" I've been to in other areas, its admission was free, which means that it could accept personal donations from its pious prayers and worshipers.

Even though I'd been to the temple many times, I still liked to walk through the front hall that housed the four ugly warrior giants. Then I looked for the hall prepared for God of Wealth on the left-hand side of the yard. You might imagine that I kowtowed though I didn't necessarily label myself as a Mazu (a goddess living over 1,050 years ago and said to protect fishermen on the sea) believer, I quite understood the feelings of the fisherman's families.

Before leaving the palace compound, I performed my ritual-like beating of a large fortune bell. It required a donation, so I did donate for my prayer by beating the bell.
