church-=-lies

Not far from the Christian church lies the equally beautiful Tianhou Gong. Tianhou is an alternative name for the Chinese goddess Mazu and many cities throughout Asia have a temple dedicated to her, usually called Tianhou Gong or sometimes just Mazu Temple. Tianhou means “Heavenly Empress” in Chinese.

I particularly liked the way that the gate, leading to the inner temple, was flanked by those beautiful autumnal leaves.
