Jiutian Goddess Temple, literally Nine Heavens Goddess Temple, is located about 20 kilometers to the northeast of Jixian County in north China's Shanxi Province.

The old temple had been repaired many times in the past; however, it has been neglected for a long time. According to an inscription on a tablet, the last repair took place in the Minguo Period. Currently, the old temple has become dilapidated, many tiles on the roof have fallen off or got damaged, and the edge of many rafters got rotten. Fortunately, most of the temple murals are still intact.
