2024-05-15

The Mazu from Yunlin’s Beigang Chao-Tian Temple is in the U.S. for a half-month tour with stops in three cities. Mazu is currently in San Francisco. Next, she’ll visit Houston and New York for the first time. She made her trans-Pacific journey in style, flying premium economy and checking in at a special counter just for her.

The Mazu from Beigang Chao-Tian Temple in Yunlin embarked on a tour in the U.S. on Tuesday. It’s her first trip abroad since the pandemic. For the first time, she’ll be stopping in Houston and New York.

Mazu had her own seat in the cabin, and ground crew checked her in at a special counter. She flew premium economy, while her guardians Qianliyan and Sunfeng’er had to settle for economy.

After more than 10 hours on the plane, the trio arrived in San Francisco, where they received a warm welcome at a local Mazu temple. There, she met San Francisco’s own Mazu, who derives her power from the ancestral temple in Beigang. Upon arriving in the U.S., Beigang’s temple chief thanked all those who made the journey a success.

Mazu is an important part of Taiwan’s culture, and now she’s here to meet the Statue of Liberty. The slogan for this pilgrimage is “Passport to Taiwan.”

The Beigang Mazu’s U.S. tour will be a chance to bring Taiwanese expats together, and to celebrate Taiwan’s rich religious heritage.
