We were lucky enough to get a tour of the temple and the treasures in the basement. We even saw some rituals performed while we were there. Excellent example of Mazu Temple. Large and ornate!

This is no ordinary temple. It's always filled with locals offering their prayers and busy throughout the day. This temple comes with an underground gallery filled with artifacts and gold statue made from gold offered by the worshippers.
