Monastery of Deep Compassion (Da Bei Chan Yuan)

The Monastery of Deep Compassion is Tianjin's most important Buddhist temple. Worshippers congregate outside the Shijiabao Hall, which houses a large, central statue of Sakyamuni (Buddha) flanked by 18 Luohan (Buddhist monks). The next large hall contains a huge and golden multi-armed statue of Guanyin, whose eyes follow you around the hall.

The road leading up to the temple is an extraordinary market of religious paraphernalia, including prayer mats, books, Buddhist rosaries, talismans, statues, incense and gifts for Buddha.
