  • Yilan Zhaoying Temple

This temple has long been a social and religious center for the local people in Yilan County. The temple is devoted to Mazu, Goddess of the Sea. It was originally built in the traditional way, facing the east and the sea so as to secure the protection of the goddess for local fishermen; but it was moved to a new site and expanded in 1834, a project which left it facing the mountains.
