In the eighth year of emperor Yongzheng’s reign (1729), the governor of Zhejiang ordered the temple to be built, and the project lasted for more than one year. Covering an area of over 26000 square meters, the temple has nine sections, all of which are of Qing Dynasty palace style and built regularly according to the custom of that time. The main hall is the greatest one; it was designed in accordance with the style of the Imperial Palace and the Taihe Palace (Hall of Supreme Harmony). In the halls there are many valuable inscriptions and engraved pictures of sea, water, clouds, god of the sea and so on, which would bring you into an ancient world showing how people regarded the sea and the God they believed in.
