At Chinese fishing villages, it is common to see Taoist temples dedicated to deity Mazu, under different name variations. Mazu is the revered Chinese Goddess of the seas and guardian protector goddess for fishermen.
I was obsessed with 16: 9 widescreen format in year 2010. It was more for Full HD video than stills. It was a challenge to compose and to fit many subjects. Some subjects or scenes such as this one were made for the ratio. I added the ‘letterboxing’ to fit Instagram’s square format.
I will create a Kukup Hotels page later. Meanwhile, try the hotels in Pontian Kecil nearby:
