Jinan Temple(Coral Mazu)


The Mazu statue in Jinan Temple is more than 200 years old. The solemn atmosphere inside the temple inspires awe and restores inner peace. Nantian Temple, located on Sunan Highway near Nanfang'ao Fishing Port, was from a Chinese sailboat in the 19th century that took shelter in the area against the winter monsoon. According to the legend, the men on the sailboat decided to resettle the Mazu statue in a cave on land, and that Mazu statue has been protecting local fishermen ever since. In 2007, a coral trader dreamed of Mazu, and when he visited Jinan Temple, he realized that it was the scene from his dream. Therefore, the man decided to use coral and gold to build an elaborate, solemn and affectionate-looking Mazu statue, highlighting the grand divinity of the Goddess, in the hope that Mazu could protect all her believers.
