旗津旗後天后宮
高雄

旗後天后宮是高雄市歷史最古老的寺廟,創建於1673年(明鄭永曆27年)。當時有來自中國福建的漁民因遇颱風漂至旗後,見此地為捕魚、定居的好地方,乃回鄉邀集鄉民攜眷跨海來此定居,並隨身迎奉湄洲媽祖來台,後經地方士紳四處捐募建祀媽祖宮以為守護神廟。

天后宮建築格局屬兩殿兩護室之形式,雖歷經多次整修,內外的雕刻、泥塑、剪黏仍保有十分的古典精緻。天后宮主要供奉媽祖,當地民眾又稱為媽祖廟或媽祖宮,廟內全年香火鼎盛,因是高雄市第一座媽祖廟,於民國68年(1979)經政府核定為三級古蹟。

More About 亚洲

Asia is the biggest continent on Earth, a darling little gem floating around in space.Hm, what is Asia? Who's in on it?China and India are safe bets for Asian nations. Korea, Japan, Thailand, you're fine.Europe? No. Europe would sort of be on the "Asian continent" if not for those pesky Ural mountains dividing things up in the middle, and then also the whole lineage of kings and wealth and nations and the EU and all that "give me my respect" stuff.Russia would probably be happiest as its own continent, so for now we'll leave it in "Eurasia" and just hope the natural gas supplies keep flowing.Pakistan and Afghanistan are dang close to Asia, but politically they show up in "Middle East" news stories an awful lot. Verdict: Eurasia.I guess we'll actually have to consider everything from Turkey on eastward to be "Eurasian", although the moniker seems overlappitory of the territory.The Asian economy is now officially raging like a wild furnace of lava that consumes everything in its path. Japan has had the largest individual economy in Asia for decades, but it is forecast that both India and China will outstrip Japan within twenty years.China is the largest holder of United States debt and is positioned to become the world's next superpower, provided that Godzilla doesn't return and decide to stomp everybody back into the Shang Dynasty.Text by Steve Smith.
