Fascinating Small Temple

Very compact temple near the Jade and Ladies Markets. We were most interested in the conical incense hanging from the ceiling.

Stayed in YMT for so many times and been to Temple street market for so long and yet never pay attention to this temple. The exact built is not known but temple was extended for few times since 1800s. Mazu is the main goddess in the temple and there is guan yin and others gods as well. Do pay attention... More

From bustle of Hong Kong you get into this little temple reminding you that Hong Kong was once a small fishermen village. Dedicated to Tin Hau, sea goddess, like so many others in Hong Kong the small temple is still a refuge for people of the modern city. There are huge incense cones hanging from the sealing, nice colors and... More

After visiting several religious sites throughout China, you find some sites like this one where people find refuge to ask for comfort, whether luck, health or any other need you may have. The heavy and strong continuous incense burning may be overwhelming for some and specially any one with a respiratory condition. A quick visit may be worth it, but... More

One of many temples in Hong Kong dedicated to the goddess protecting seafarers, this temple can be a little difficult to find, but is close to the Temple Street Night Market. A little bit ramshackle, but visited more by genuine worshippers than tourists, which gives it more of an authentic feel than some larger temples. Dozens of huge incense coils... More

Tin Hau Temple is located near MTR Yau Ma Tei Station. I recommend to go later at the day so you can visit the Temple Street Night Market.

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.

Staying in Jordan / Yau Ma Tei

Neighbourhood Profile
Jordan / Yau Ma Tei
The Jordan and Yau Ma Tei neighbourhood is where you will find some of the more authentic areas of Hong Kong. Not as glamourous or busy as its neighbours Mong Kok to the north or Tsim Sha Tsui to the south, Yau Ma Tei is often mistakenly overlooked by visitors on their trips to Hong Kong. Exploring parts of this area makes you feel like you’ve been transported back in time. A large part of the neighbourhood draws from the rich history of Temple Street, stretching from Jordan to Yau Ma Tei, where a mix of dai pai dongs (outdoor restaurants), market stalls, fortune tellers and old karaoke bars bring out the history and culture of the area. The neighbourhood is a showcase of diversity – different ethnicities, cultures, and a mix of old and new.
