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 the people in the Guangdong Province, hence the high density of temples dedications in this part of China. Historically, This Tin Hau Temple was destroyed shortly after being built by a massive typhoon. Local villagers believed that Tin Hau had sacrificed herself to protect and save the local people so they immediately set to rebuiling the temple in her honour. This is what you find today when visiting this Tin Hau Temple. Here you can see a typical Tin Hau Temple with main hall and side halls, lined deity structures and shrines for worship. You can also find the expected plaster murals, carvings and wall paintings, lots of incense burning and a peaceful environment. In the end, this is not a priority temple but is worth a quick visit if you are on your way to the Museum of Coastal Defences and can be conveniently seen in 10-15 minutes.
