Statue of Mazu

Lin Mo Niang’s death, at the age of 29, was as remarkable as her birth.  Reaching the top of Meiyu Mountain alone, she was encircled by clouds of dense fog, and to the accompaniment of enchanting celestial music, she was carried into the heavens in a golden glow of light.

Murmansk Memorial Date unknown. Approx. 28 m (92 ft) hexagonal cylindrical tower with lantern and two galleries, painted with red and white horizntal bands.

Located high on a hill above the city, it has no navigational value, but it deserves special mention as the only lighthouse in the Murmansk area readily accessible to tourists.
