It's built in the end of Ming dynasty. When General Shihlang took Taiwan during the years of Kanghsi, he changed the name into Matsu temple which was granted as "Tyanhou" by Kanghsi Emperor, and called big Tyanhou Temple. The structure is imposing and attracts adorers. The slabs of polished stones etched with coiling dragons and flying phoenixes on the wall are excellent arts.
