The decoration of the temple is intricate and colourful. I very much enjoyed a brief visit here and a few minutes of the ambiance. Apprenetly all linked with the sea and fishing - see the fish statues on either side of e temple.

Not planned just coincidence, we saw the parade for Chinese New Year. Lion dance and noisy music as usual. I'd prefer other one in a small island near by. It needs a boat to get there thou.

The temple was built in 1741 and is one of two Tin Hau temples that celebrates intermittently (this one I believe every two years) with a marine parade. Well preserved, quite fine stone work, with a regal entrance overlooking the bay. Best... More

I have visited a number of these temples but this one is particularly attractive. We stopped off for 20 minutes in the course of a 3 hour boat trip (from the Volcanic Discovery Centre) round the hexagonal pillar/geological formations.... A welcome break. This temple was very photogenic and is set in a pleasant open area.

The Tin Hau Temple found in Sai Kung in the old town and is dedicated to the Goddess of the sea. In Hong Kong, there are over 70 Tin Hau temples. This particular Tin Hau temple is quite typical of others in the city in regard to what you can expect to see in and around the temple grounds. However,... More
