    Founded in 1893. The oldest temple in the town.
    According to the caretaker, in ancient china, there is this filial young girl by the name of Guo Miao Ling / 郭妙玲 and she was married to a fisherman’s family.
    On one fine day, while the men’s were out at sea, MiaoLing fell asleep after a long days work. During the nap, she dreamt that her husband and father in – law was struck by disaster at sea. In her dream, she manage to rescue her father in law but as she was to rescue her own husband, she was awoken by her mother in law for dinner. Thinking it was just a dream..she prayed for their safe returns.

Narrating the tragedy, the father in law mention that during the disaster, MiaoLing mysterious appear to save him but just as when she was about to save her husband, she suddenly vanish. MiaoLing was surprise as whatever said by her father in law is the same as what she has dreamt.
