Nantian Temple(Gold Mazu. Jade Mazu)
The villagers in Nanfang'ao make a living with fishing. The fishermen fight against the tides and bad weather on the raging sea. For better weather and better catch, many families worship Mazu at home; they hope that the fishermen can always come home safe with big catch. Nantian Temple, built in 1956, is the local religious center and also the spiritual sustenance for the fishermen. The golden statue of Mazu, donated by the believers, weighing 200 kilograms, has attracts many believers and tourists to the temple, and is one of the special features of Nantian Temple, along with the jade Mazu statue made of a huge rough rock in the temple and the five Mazu statues that came from Meizhou. With these treasured statues sitting inside, Nantian Temple has been a popular temple full of believers at all time.
