Introduction

Anchor

In the old days, when Wuqi fishermen went out to the sea, the elders would keep reminding them to pray t o Wuqi-Ma in Zhaoyuan Temple f or safety.Wuqi-Ma is the wood-carved Mazu statue brought toTaiwan 150 years ago from Putian' s Meizhou in Fujian.

Mazu was nicknamed Wuqi-Ma from Zhaoyuan Temple because of her long-standing protection of the residents. It is significant not only religiously but also in everyday economics, tourism & travel, folk art(as seen in the temple' s carved columns and engraved stone steles which contain cultural significance). Most importantly, the temple has brought everyone together, while serving as an emotional converging point and a spiritual symbol for the locals.
