Tianhou Temple, Changhua

(4.5/5 based on 65+ reviews on the web)
Built in 17th century, Tianhou Temple represents one of the oldest temples in Taiwan devoted to Matsu, the Goddess of the Sea. It got its current layout in 1936—--that of three structures and two yards. In front of the temple, a small garden features a dragon pond and at the back you'll find a culture museum of Matsu. The Goddess’ statue in the altar, brought to Taiwan from China in 1684, has a face black with incense smoke. Don’'t miss the elegant murals and paintings, and exquisite stone and wood carvings inside. Outside, visit the souvenir shops or get some delicacies at the street food stalls. The temple hosts many religious festivals and over 1 million worshipers every year. Make Tianhou Temple a centerpiece of your Changhua vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Changhua vacation route planner.

  • 歷史最悠久的天后宮,供奉的黑面三媽媽祖,不管是平日或假日都擁有最虔誠的教徒,廟裡香火鼎盛,廟前有著道地的小吃,值得細細品嘗 
  • 天后宮本身保留古老建築的韻味,雖然裡面有些地方覺得商業感重了點,但是跟其他知名廟宇比起來,還在可接受範圍內! 
  • It is a big temple. A lot of restaurants. Trippers called at this time because it had finished lunch in the other, but here a local taste of the food is good.
