We were taken here on a walking tour by HK Greeters - Mingo Mok. We could smell it before we could see it - tucked away. HUGE spiral incense burning. Respectfully restrictive for photos but welcoming all the same. Interesting to learn that it is a temple for the Goddess of the Sea yet not on the water today. Built in 1864 - it was - just goes to show how much land has been reclaimed.

This temple is serving a god call 'Tin Hau'. Whom protect citizen when Hong Kong still a fishing village. Temple is combine from 5 parts. Middle one is 'Tin Hau' protecting fisher. other 3 temples is serving the god call "To Tei" and "Shing Wang". "To Tel" and "Shing Wang" is protecting citizen land and castle. Also there have a college. 1950's before, college was a place for kowloon child to had education. But now has been closed. Those of the temples having history. And Temple attendant is kind.

Enjoyed walking around this temple very much. Also felt very welcome with no pressure to give any donations, this always makes me want to donate more! The coils smoking away were impressive, saw one being bought, lite and hung on the ceiling. It was very peaceful.
