Luermen Great Queen of Heaven Temple's ’Sending away the gods’ and ’Greeting the god of Happiness’ Ceremonies

Luermen Great Queen of Heaven Temple's "Sending away the gods" and "Greeting the god of happiness" ceremonies have been conducted annually for years, becoming a local tradition. The success that these celebrations have had in combining religious beliefs, art, and culture opens a door for Taiwan's religious culture. As the saying goes, "While performing pioneering work is not easy;

how to maintain it is even harder." Only by the great effort and solidity of local villagers have these two unique ceremonies been passed down and become truly free from the disputes like "which temple is really located where Koxinga landed when he arrived in Taiwan?" and "which temple truly represents the orthodoxy of Matsu belief ? "
