April 28 2008( lunnar March 23) is the birthday of Matsu. The Residnt's Matsu is at Feng-Gu Temple, a sister temple of Yuan-Di Temple. They are managed by a committee, The management committee of Tsoying Yuan-Di Temple and Feng-Gu Temple TMCTYDFGT. The history of Feng-Gu Temple could trace back to about 100 years ago The initial site of temple of GOA, god of agriculture, is at inner casttle. For the military reason, the Japanese forced to leaving the place. Since the GOA is public, belonging the citizen, and neither two "Emperor" gods in one temple, then another new temple is set up at the present site (now, unreconstruction till 080429).The Matsu of Tsoying ordinary residents is then moving to Feng-Gu Temple as a powerful abiblity to dissolve the endemic plague-like diseases, from Pei-Gang as a branch. The belief of Matsu is so populized that even there is a Chinese, esp. Fuchien and Canton series, there is Matsu temple. On Tsoying, it is more prominent for there are so many private temples and many Matsu's branches noted.Here, the temple is under reconstruction, and the statues are moving to adjacent, temporary house.
