Matsu (goddess) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (913 words)
Matsu (Chinese: 媽祖; pinyin: Māzǔ; Wade-Giles: Ma-tsu; literally "Mother-Ancestor"; POJ: Má-chó·), mortal name Lin Muoniang (林默娘), is the Taoist Goddess of the Sea who protects fishermen and sailors.
In one version, she died in 987 at the age of 28, when she climbed a mountain alone and flew to heaven and became a goddess.
Another Matsu temple that has gained notoriety in the west is located in Los Angeles, which is known as Chua Ba Thien Hau, a popular tourist attraction in Chinatown.
