Thien Hau Temple

750-756 Yale Street, Los Angeles, CA 90012

The Thien Hau Temple was an Italian Baptist church. The Chinese-Vietnamese Camau Association purchased and converted the original structure into the Thien Hau Temple, which opened in 2005.

The temple honors Tin Hou, who was believed to save fishermen and maritime voyeurs at sea.  As those were major occupations in Southeast Asia, the temple held special meaning for new immigrants from that region.
