The heavenly Queen refers to Mazu, who was born during the Sung Dynasty in 96o.

The Melbourne Chinese community have been working for years to get this project off the ground and while not complete, the site has really come along since I saw it last year. When I visited there were many carved stone blocks ready to be erected in the front court yard. The site is on land fill and would have been an industrial building like the rest of the surrounding suburb, the area however is dotted by parkland and a walking track following the river.

 

100th image uploaded to flickr! it has taken a while but that's all right by me.
