Another Temple

As Chinese style temples go,this one is typical,nothing extraordinary,except for the surrounding ocean scenery,and the giant nearby statue.Worth the visit if your also visiting the statue,if not do not bother.

Magang temple and matsu sculpture
Aug 2017 • Family
The temple and big gorgeous statue of matsu overlooking the entire island are part of the same park/complex. I started walking from furen and took the underground tunnel, however in retrospect don't take it, there is a nice wooded walk and the tunnel is creepy and claustrophobic and you exit via a sketchy ladder. This is part of the military complex on the island, not really part of the magang temple. Once at the statue you can walk out onto an overhang to look at matsu or walk around her, she is very impressive. Then you can walk down a stone staircase that god all the way to the temple and beach. The beach has a military boat you can climb on and there is a path of 10 or more fantastic statutes, unfortunately the beach there is under construction and not kept up. The actual temple is surrounded by gorgeous trees with some trails in back that I didn't have time for, but the main temple is beautiful and it is not only for tourists but serious devotees come here to pray. There are nice benches that look like hands made of stone to sit and a great view of the ocean.

Very quiet and small
Took a ferry from Fuzhou, the ride was about 1 and half hour. Went on a weekday, so there were very few people around the island. The temple was really small and We were the only people in the temple, everything was self serve. This is a must visit place if you ever go to matsu island.
