Trip to Meizhou Island, China's Fujian

updated: 2013-02-20

Meizhou Island is a small island close to the shore of Putian, Fujian Province. It is known for being the birthplace of Matsu, or Mazu, who is the indigenous goddess of the sea and is said to protect fishermen and sailors. She is the patron deity of all southern Chinese and East Asians. The Ming Dynasty witnessed the construction of many temples dedicated to her across China. These temples later also spread to other countries with large numbers of Southern Chinese inhabitants.
