Nantian Temple, Nanfang'ao

Nanfang'ao is a natural fishing port and most of the locals here make a living on fishing. To thank goddess Mazu for saving their lives in 1946, the fishermen of Nanfang'ao started building Nantian Temple in 1950 for the goddess. By 1952, the main hall was complete. The temple was inaugurated on November 18, 1956. In 1990, more than 20 artisans were commissioned to make the world's largest Mazu statue made with pure gold. The statue weighs 200 kilograms and when it was officially installed on September 10, 1995, many believers came to worship it. The temple still enjoys much respect today.
