Taiwan's Nine Day Mazu Pilgrimage

XINGANG, TAIWAN - APRIL 16: Pilgrims burn incense sticks in Xingang Fengtian Temple where the statue of Mazu will rest for two nights before resuming its journey, on day four of the nine day Mazu pilgrimage on April 16, 2018 in Xingang, Taiwan. The annual Mazu Pilgrimage begins at Jenn Lann Temple in Taichung and sees around 200,000 pilgrims walk up to 12 hours each day for nine days carrying a statue of Chinese sea goddess Mazu in a sedan chair. The journey covers around 350 kilometres and visits more than 100 temples before returning to Taichung. The centuries-old pilgrimage is now recognised by UNESCO as living heritage and with an estimated 5 million participants spread over the nine days, it is considered to be one of the greatest religious festivals in the world.
