There are several Tin Hau Temples in the Hong Kong area; it appears that everyone that visits this temple is rating the similarly named Temple in Kowloon on Public Square and Nathan (I have also been to that temple). This is on the path from the Shau Kei Wan MTR to the Museum of Coastal Defences in Hong Kong. Photos available to be posted.

Discovered this little temple complex by chance, although it is a small temple and won't take long to look around it is still definitely worth a visit. The architecture is beautiful, and is still used for daily worship.

Sits on the walking route from the MTR station to the coastal defence museum. It's a small temple with a nice friendly feel. Worth popping get in if you're passing but not really worth making a special trip.

Tucked between modern buildings and concrete that has now surrounded the once waterfront temple. Still important as a place of worship for locals and visitors alike.

This Tin Hau Temple is one of the oldest establishments in Hong Kong facing the waterfront and safeguarding all the fishermen in and out of Hong Kong Harbor while the island was still just a fishermen village. Today, the temple is still in the same location but the waterfront is now quite far away! However, you can still have the... More

This is a small Tin Hau Temple which can be visited in route to the excellent Hong Kong Museum of Coastal Defence in Shau Kei Wan. Built in 1873 by local fisherman, this is one of many Tin Hau Temples scattered around Hong Kong. Tin Hau is a patron deity for fishing and seafaring villages and is actively worshipped by... More
