Introduction

Early settlers who came to Taiwan saw Sections 1 and 2 of Huanshan Road of Neihu District at the foot of the mountains, and hence named it “Shanxia” (the foot of a hill). Hence, from Lane 411, Section 1of Neihu Road, and to the north of Section 2, to Sections 1 and 2 of Huanshan Road, it forms a corner of Neihu, where Neihu’s “Shanjiaojiao Mazu” is enshrined to bless the area. On the 2nd Saturday of the 3rd month of the Lunar calendar, grand events such as holy pilgrimage and Bihu fireworks festival will be held to celebrate Mazu’s birthday; these are Neihu’s largest religious events. “Neihu Mazu”, enshrined in Neihu Mazu Temple, has always been the center of local belief. However, something special is that in the early days, Mazu’s statue was enshrined by Neihu District’s representative of the believers on a rotational basis. In recent years, it is enshrined temporarily at the Preparatory Office of Neihu Mazu Temple on Lane 46 of Lishan Street, giving an odd spectacle of a god without a temple. However, it never diminishes the believers’ devotion. The annual holy pilgrimage always attracts pilgrims from all over Taiwan.
