Tin Hau Temple, Hong Kong

3.8
One of several temples in China dedicated to the goddess of the sea, Tin Hau Temple is revered by tourists as well as locals. The temple was located on the coastline, facing the sea, before being relocated to a more central area by fishermen in the mid-19th century. Though it's certainly not the country's grandest temple, you can gain valuable insights into the region's religious habits. Our Hong Kong trip itinerary builder makes visiting Tin Hau Temple and other Hong Kong attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • An experienced master is there to personally guide me do the worship (拜太歲) properly, and prays for me. Not many temples can provide such arrangement as it requires qualification, and experience to do that, the worship is also a time consuming process. I felt so confident to be able to make the proper and best worship to God. I saw a certificate hanging on the wall near the entrance, showing the qualification of the master's proficiency.
  • While temples dedicated to the Goddess of the Sea are found in coastal areas, this fine example is conveniently located in Yau Ma Tei. We learnt during our visit that this temple was also by the harbor but massive land reclamation had moved the coast far away. What we found most interesting was the traditional interior decor and spiral joss sticks that covered most of the temple's ceiling.
  • Unfortunately, it's closed for construction, as of 4/11/2017. Can't read the signs so I don't know when it'll be open again. Perhaps check their main site.
  • Small temple in the middle of the city but great atmosphere.
  • A great little temple to soak up the Chinese temple culture not far from downtown Tsim Sha Tsui. You can enter from Nathan Road or from the courtyard along Shanghai Street. No one will bother you so take your time to appreciate the place. Sit at the big courtyard under the banyan tree, relax and do some people watching. If you are there in the late afternoon, the stalls around Temple Street Market may start their business so you can do some shopping too.

Where to stay in Hong Kong

Head to Tsim Sha Tsui for the main tourist section of Hong Kong, where it's easy to find reasonably priced accommodations to suit your particular requirements, with more expensive hotels closer to the water and side streets offering budget hostels. You can also consider Hong Kong Island, which offers easy links to the mainland via its ferry and train lines. Chain hotels sit in the northern section of the island, where luxury and budget options remain available.
