Tianhou Temple was built in the second year of Qingyuan of Song Dynasty. It is the place where "foreign ships and passenger ships gathered". Officials often hold ceremonies for merchant ships sailing to the sea. It is also the place where the Quanzhou immigrants welcome the spirits of Mazu to go abroad for worship. It has great influence on Taiwan and Southeast Asia, and is an important ground for Mazu beliefs. The Museum of History of Relations between Fujian and Taiwan built in the temple collects a lot of precious historical relics and folklore as well as cultural artifacts.
