  • This temple isnt big or impressive. However, if you are interested to go to a Tin Hau Temple, you should try to go. Tin hau is someone who help people who sail or in the ocean. 
  • A unique atmosphere of big incense that swirl around the light and smoke to divine feelings as a prayer place. This is the place you want to visit.

  • Small friendly temple, colored in a neighborhood friendly and accessible easily. See if you are in the neighborhood.

  • The liveliest night market in Hong Kong, Temple St extends from Man Ming Lane in the north to Nanking St in the south and is cut in two by the Tin Hau temple complex. While you may find better bargains further north in New Kowloon, and certainly over the border in Shenzhen, it is still a good place to go for the bustling atmosphere and the smells and tastes on offer from the dai pai dong (open-air street stall) food.
  • The loction of this temple is the main attraction, the temple itself isn't any great shakes but it's interesting to have it in the middle of Kowloon with some old trees
  • The very busy street market has an authentic atmosphere.
  • Hong Kong is not part of China
  • Many buildings only received a sliver of daylight every day, including the Tin Hau Temple, which was constructed in 1951
