  • In 2022, April 1st coincides with the first day of “March” by Lunar Calendar. There is saying that this month is the month crazy for Mazu, one of the deities in Taiwanese culture. Among all religious activities around Mazu, Dajia Mazu Pilgrimage is the biggest one. The duration usually spans 10 days 9 nights. The route covers a lot of towns and villages in central Taiwan where Mazu worship is deeply rooted in the soil and people's blood. If you visit Taichung, Changhua or Yulin during this month, why not join part of this event hailed by Discovery Channel as one of the world's 3 major religious festivals?
  • Ma zhu temple. There’s a basement where it houses the gold statue. Very worth the time to pay that a visit. Many ppl praying.
  • An annual event, one of the four major religious events in the world.
