Penghu Tianhou Temple at Magong was built in 1604. It is Taiwan's oldest and finest temple. The temple survived for an age of 400 years and has become the worshipping center of Penghu residents. The architecture is the work of famous Tangshan artists. Every part of the temple is made with utmost refined style. Inside the temple are some prized Ching period arts. Its inside out is the extreme artistic presentation of styling and sculpture. There is also a tablet in memory of Yojong Sheng's success in persuading Dutch invaders to retreat, which is also the earliest tablet found in Taiwan.
