Professional in incense manufacture

Strolling around this artistic culture garden, visitors will see masters making incense by special skills originated from Tangshan, China. Every morning before 9 A.M., three masters gather at the incense making room and prepare for the day’s work. There are totally 9 steps on this process. People always think that making incense is easy, but it turned out that the contrary is true. The masters must be very meticulous on every single step, and then finally a bundle of great incense could be finished.

Opened in 2008, Signang Incense Artistic Culture Garden, the only incense-themed culture garden, was designated as a Local Cultural Museum by Ministry of Culture. Here visitors could not only see the incense making process, but also join some interesting DIY activities. Beside the incense making room, there is a specially designed chandelier made by incense gradually spreading the wonderful smell, bringing visitors a surprisingly relaxing feeling.

In addition to a diversity of incense, visitors could see the stories and history behind. Legend has it that, in order to cure her father, the fairy of ninth heaven, the creator of incense, grinds Chinese medicine into powder and burns them into the air, so his father could smell the smell and get recovered. In another exhibition area, there are lots of different spices. Taking a leisure walk here, visitors could know more about incense by watching and smelling. A wall exhibiting cinnamon sample is built for visitors to know the smell of cinnamon.
