Anping Kaitai Matsu Temple
In the 23rd year of Kangxi Era, General Shilang had the House of Yiyuanzi, Prince Lingjing, rebuilt as “Grand Matsu Temple”. Since then, the Matsus in Luermen, Nangand, and Beigang wished to be covered by the ashes from Anping Matsu Temple. Therefore, when Anping Matsu Temple has a Peace Worship Ceremony, the Matsu statues from other temples join the ceremony. Other Matsu temples come and join geting together every year at Anping Matsu Temple for the event. Anping Matsu Temple is reckoned as the first Matsu temple in Taiwan. It takes about 3-minutes by walk from Yanping Street.
