The Ceremony of Peace and Tranquility for Welcoming the Lords
The triennial " Ying Wang Festival" has become an event for almost the whole town. The "King Boat Burning" ceremony has even pushed the atmosphere of this religious activity to the highest peak, creating a ceremonial culture known throughout Taiwan.
The residents of Donggang, who rely on the sea for their livelihood, believe that as long as they worship piously, Neptunian God Wen will surely bless the entire township. As Donglong Temple Ying Wang Ping'an Jidian shoulders the task of praying for blessings and disasters, they are obliged to abide by the rituals and ceremonies passed down during the Qingling Period. The festivals not only take a long time and are large in scale but also are always filled with solemn religious atmosphere. Among all the Taiwanese rituals, there is a compliment of “Xigang in the north, and Donggang in the south.”
