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.

  • 鹿港發展的早,因此大小廟宇四處可見,但每次到天后宮,總是香客人潮洶湧,不管是平日或假日。因我是基督徒不拜偶像,但總是好奇的為遊客或進香客拍一下照。  more »
  • 鹿港天后宮附近有許多小廟,最主要的還是這座歷史最悠久的媽祖廟,進入天后宮內會有指示告訴你上香的順序、路線,不會不清楚要怎麼參拜  more »
  • 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  more »
