The religion of Chen Jinggu [edit this]
Boasting a long history and wide influence, Chen Jinggu was regarded as the protective divinity of women and children that is fully comparable to the Mazu Goddess of Meizou. Chen Jinggu devoted herself to expound sutras, subjugate evil spirits, help the poor and support pregnant women, as well as pray for rain, eliminate devils and save the people. She was so loved and esteemed by the people that they built temples for her and called her “Goddess of Fuzhou”. Those temples were visited by pilgrims of Fujian, Jiangxi, Zhejiang and Taiwan.
