Lukang Mazu Temple 鹿港天后宮

Inside Mazu Temple, Lukang.

I visited the famous Mazu Temple 鹿港天后宮 in Lukang 鹿港, Changhua 彰化, one peaceful night of my bicycle ride around Taiwan. Mazu 媽祖 (also known as Tian Hou 天后) is the most important goddess in Taiwan—and this is one of her most important places of worship.
