Legend has it that Mazu, born in 960 A.D., was called Mo (silence) because she never cried until o­ne month old. When she was 16, a celestial being gave her a bronze talisman, and from then o­n she grew in supernatural powers and visdom.

When Kangxi unified Taiwan, the general Shi Lang reported that the army had been helped by the Goddess. The Mazu Temple therefore was again rebuilt.
