Information about Qingan Guild Hall
Qingan Guild Hall is a national tourist attraction and a national key cultural relic protection institution. It was completed in the third year of Xianfeng (1853) and is one of the eight Tianhou Temples (a temple to worship the goddess Mazu, who secured the safety of marine shipping) in China. It is also listed in the seven guild halls of China, and is the only existing ancient architecture to integrate a Tianhou Temple and a guild hall together in South China. It has now been rebuilt as the first marine affairs folk museum in China.
Information about Zoumatang Village
The Zoumatang Ancient Village is an ancient village worth visiting around Ningbo. This small village has 76 scholars since the Northern Song Dynasty. The village retains a large number of Ming and Qing architectures worthy of savouring. Many of the inadvertent carvings are very colourful and one of the highlights in the village. Because it has not yet been fully developed, the ancient village preserves the simple folk customs.
