In ancient times, Tianhou was called the Goddess of escort. Legend has it that she is a Fujian native, whose name is Lin Mingmo. She often sails to sea to rescue the victims, so she is respected as a goddess by later generations. In Yuan Dynasty, the capital needed to transport large quantities of grain to the north every year. First, it arrived in Tianjin by sea, and then it was transported to the capital by river. In order to pray for the safety of navigation, the Yuan government worshipped the goddess of escort as the empress of heaven and built the Tianhou Palace in coastal towns.

On this street, there is an ancient temple which has been famous for hundreds of years. Its original name is "Tianfei Palace" and later it is renamed "Tianhou Palace". Tianjin is east of the Bohai Sea, backed by the capital city, and has been a hub of land and water transportation for boats and wagons since ancient times. Tianhou Palace is a temple for offering sacrifices to the goddess of the sea and the queen of heaven under the circumstances of the great development of waterway transportation.

In the decoration of the facade building, besides the painted stories and paintings, the brick and wood carving decoration is another distinctive feature. It has a wide range of contents, most of which have strong folk flavor and auspicious and festive implications.

Shi Baozhai's woodcarving is based on several ups and downs and plot changes in Qingming Shanghe Tu. In the north, there are many boats moored along the Bank of the Bian River. In the middle of the river, seven or eight people on a big boat are swaying desperately. Shipmen's struggle to enter shows the busy and tense situation of water transportation on large rivers with heavy loads. In the middle picture, the Hongqiao outside Dongshuimen on the Bian River is in the middle. Under the bridge, a boat full of boats is about to pass. All boatmen are working hard. Vehicles, livestock, pedestrians and boat watchers on the bridge run shoulder to shoulder, forming a torrent of urban life, which is the climax part of the picture of Qingming Shanghe Tu.
