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

    刘大师:据你所描述的“浙江湄州妈祖庙位于被称为“海上明珠”的湄州岛的北端”,此殿是否也应在福建“湄洲岛北端”。此次普陀山之行后才得知普陀山是观音道场,所有寺庙供奉的均是观音菩萨。向大师学习了。
