information in your note!
Magong City was called Magong Cheng in early Qing Dynasty and was the first Han community in Taiwan. The most important temple here worships Goddess of Sea, because fishing industry is the most important industry in Penghu. The temple is a first grade historic site today. This city has a long history of development. Since Qing Kuang Hsu year 13 (1887), the Ching government began building city walls and now only one out of the six gates survives, which is the Shuncheng Gate. In 1920, the Japanese army stationed here changed the city’s name to Magong.
Magong City is the first stop for visitors to Penghu. There are many shops selling beautiful stones and special local products. At night, there are street vendors and neon lights on the streets. Visitors should never miss the night market in Magong.
