In the complex, developed in 1868, are 5 small temples all bound together. The complex is dedicated to Tin Hau, the Chinese goddess of the sea. In Hong Kong alone there are over 60 temples dedicated to her.
In the temple, as in many other temples to Tin Hau, you can join the celebrations for the goddess of the sea. For hundreds of years the birthday of the goddess has been a holiday in Hong Kong, combined with a festival and big celebrations. During the festival there is the main event - a flotilla of decorated fishing boats departing from Kowloon and arriving at the Tin Hau Temple.
Also, the celebrations include colorful parades, with Kung Fu shows, drummers, dancers, and dragons and lions. For metropolitan Hong Kong, these celebrations hold a special place of tradition, a connection between the glorious past of the region and citizens, and today.
Entrance to the temple is free.
