Kailong Temple is the temple with the longest history of worship of the Seven Star Goddess(七星娘娘) in Taiwan. Its images of female kindness are believed to give blessings to children, and its seven fairy images are interpreted as bringing good fortune in romance and relationships. Kailong Temple(開隆宮) is well known in Taiwan for its coming of age ceremony, where every Qixi Festival (七夕Chinese Valentine’s Day) parents from all over Taiwan bring their 16 year old children to participate in the incredible adulthood ceremony. This rite of passage is an important Qixi activity in the district, and is now even known abroad; for the past few years many Japanese parents have brought their children to take part.
