FIRST TO HOST ORIGINAL CHINESE SEA GODDESS (MAZU) STATUE
On August 11, 2017 at TheanHou Temple, Robson Height, Kuala Lumpur. Persatuan Hainan Selangor & Wilayah Persekutuan entry into Malaysia Book of Records for being the First To Host Original Chinese Sea Goddess (Mazu) Statue. Statues of three Chinese deities travelled business class on their trip to Malaysia as part of an inaugural cultural exchange tour. Chinese sea goddess Mazu, as well as her heavenly guardians Qianliyan and Shunfenger, travelled 2,800km from their coastal temple home in the Fujian province in China to the TheanHou temple in Kuala Lumpur. The statues, which flew on an RM1,300 (S$264) air ticket and were provided special passports, were also accompanied by an entourage of over 130 people on the Xiamen Air flight last week. This is basic respect we have for the culture of Goddess Mazu. They were also more than 6ft high, so they had to fly business class.
