Fujian Putian the Mazu Statue in Meizhou Island
Fujian Province

 Meizhou Island, the second large island of Putian city, lies in 42 kilometers of southeast of Putian urban center and only 1.82 sea mile away from the main land. Being the traffic hub for Fujian and Taiwan folks since ancient times, Meizhou Island has now possessed ferry ports, seaport terminals for passenger ships toward Taiwan of up to 3,000 tons and other convenient outbound transportation facilities, as well as a mature road system covering all spots over the island.

Mazu (Mother-Ancestor), also spelt Matsu, is the indigenous goddess of the sea who protects fishermen and sailors, and is invoked as the goddess who protects East Asians who are associated with the ocean. Her mortal name is Lin Moniang

    Maestro, the location of this photo should be placed on Meizhou Island in Putian City, Fujian Province. 刘大师,这张全景图是否应放在福建省莆田市东海面的湄洲岛上,2004年的谷歌地球也许不是很清楚,现在可以辨别了。向大师学习了。请赐教。
