Mama Palace was built in Jiaqing period of Qing Dynasty and reopened in 1992. The stone relief on the inner door wall of the temple, the wood carvings and paintings on the beams and columns, and the inlaid porcelain on the roof all have very high aesthetic value. The Mother's Palace is very small. You can come out if you go in and worship. Opposite the old mother's palace is the point of view - the stage of the old mother's palace, which has two floors of buildings. The first floor is a stage with regular time to perform Chaoshan opera every day; the second floor shows the traditional skills of Chaoshan, including cooking skills, inlaid porcelain art, Chaoshan embroidery, wood carving, paper-cut, murals and so on. Next to the stage of Mama Palace is the famous Mama Palace Zongqiu. After worshipping Buddha and listening to the opera, we can see the skills of Chaozhou and enjoy snacks. In fact, there are many entertainment programs here.
Mama Palace, also known as Tianhou Palace, is a history museum, located at the road outside Shantou City, Guangdong Province. The adjacent Guandi Temple was the earliest building before Shantou opened its port. It was built in Jiaqing of Qing Dynasty and reopened in 1992. Opposite the rebuilt stage of Mama Palace, carved beams and painted pillars, has a high level of architectural artistic attainments.
To get to the old city of Shantou, you have to walk near the small park. The incense of the Mama Palace has been constantly going to look at it. In fact, Mazu Temple's Tianhou Palace, Chaoshan people very much believe in the gods, the whole building appearance maintenance is good, inside can not be photographed.
The temples in Chaoshan are really unique. The roofs are full of colorful characters, flowers and birds. It's made of chinaware, which lasts for a long time and does not fade. Chaoshan people are very religious and devout. Unfortunately, I don't know if I believe it or it will be interesting.
The stage of Mama Palace is located at No. 1 Shengping Road. It was an open space opposite Mama Palace during the Jiaqing period of the Qing Dynasty. Whenever there is a major folk festival, the theatre will be set up to hold performances. Usually it is used as a commercial market, historically known as "Magongqian". After renovation, today's Magong theatre is an independent white building. The weekday museum is a good place to watch Chaozhou Opera and Chaoshan Kungfu Tea. Opposite the stage of Mama Palace is Mama Palace (Tianhou Palace).
Shantou. Thean Hou Temple. Admiration. The sculptor is exquisite.
During your visit, please pay attention to the various Chaoshan crafts in the temple. For example, the stone relief on the door wall and the wood carving and colored painting of beams and columns have high aesthetic value. Especially, a pair of carved pan dragon pillars carved by the whole stone, with eight immortals standing on them, have superb craftsmanship. In the past, only the Imperial Palace and the Confucian temple could be seen. The ceramic inlay art of the roof is a unique technology of Chaoshan craftsmanship. With the firing of color ceramics, a variety of theatrical patterns can be assembled. The characters are lifelike, and they are not afraid of the erosion of wind and rain. Now they are widely used in folk architecture.
Just outside the area of the small park, the temple is not big or small, and gods are spiritual. A building with Lingnan characteristics, gray and white tones, appears simple and dignified, although roof tiles fade, but the traces of history can be fully displayed.
