Wangye Worshipping Ceremony

Wangye Worshipping Ceremony is a major cultural event of Donggang and Little Liuqiu. In Taiwan’s “Wangye” culture, which is a folk belief, this event is highly important. The believers follow ancient rules, carrying sedan chairs with deity statues to parade through the town and finally burn “celestial boats” to send the deities back to the sky. If you happen to travel to Donggang or Little Liuqiu during the Wangye Worshipping Ceremony, be sure to participate in this occasion and feel its charm.
