Matsu (媽祖) Temple
Matsu is a goddess in the Southeast coast of China. She is also known as Our Lady of the Sky, Tianfei Niangniang, and Meizhou Mother.

It is said that Matsu was named Lin and was born in China's Fujian Province, on Putian Meizhou Island. The worship of Matsu started in the Northern Song Dynasty and spread gradually to Fujian, Zhejiang, Guangdong and other coastal provinces, such as Taiwan, Japan, and parts of Southeast Asia (Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, Vietnam).

In the Ming Dynasty, Yongle years, Zheng He period, the Matsu belief reached its peak. In addition, as a large number of Chinese migrated abroad, they spread the belief in Matsu with them. Temples can be found in Chinatowns in America and Europe (especially coastal areas) and in Nagasaki, Yokohama, Macau, Malaysia, Kuala Lumpur Tin Hau, and the Philippines. After thousands of years, the influence spread from Matsu Meizhou Island to the Chinese coastal areas having a significant impact on the culture.
