There’s a lot to see in Hong Kong, so make sure you only visit the parts that interest you by going on a fully customized private walking tour. Save time waiting in line for sites that don’t excite you, and make every hour of your trip count. This tour can be themed by specific interests (e.g., food or photography spots) and is designed just for you.

銅鑼灣天后廟過去有很多香港人去那裡祈禱。然而,我發現最近去那裡的人少了,因為管理那裡的夫妻,總是以粗魯和非常不友好的態度, 敦促人們添香油。此外,我看到一些善信秘密地給他們金錢,以獲得許可燃燒元寶。真的可惡!

Worth the visit and near the Tin Hau subway station (exit A1). Very beautiful roof structure and quite historic ie over 200 years old. The temple is dedicated to the Goddess of Seafarers. No charge to enter and need 20-25 minutes.

Whilst the modern gardens are peaceful if nondescript, the temple itself really is something special. The exterior friezes and artwork adorning the roof are reasons enough to visit and study for a while, and the interior is calm and atmospheric as expected.

A nice historical building to visit in Causeway Bay is the Tin Hau Temple. This is a Declared Monument located a few minutes walk from the Tin Hau MTR Station Exit A1 on the east side of Victoria Park. The temple and garden are open from 7am to 5pm daily. The temple is was built by the Tai Clan sometime in the 18th-century upon the grounds where a red stone or figure of Tin Hau was found (depending on which version of the legend). It was believed the item was gift from the goddess of the sea (Tin Hau). A shrine was setup on the location. It became very popular with local fisherman prompting the building of a temple that you see today. The Tin Hau Temple a typical two hall temple with side halls. The interior features shrines, deity figures, numerous offerings left by worshippers, hanging incense coils, nice ceramic reliefs of a tiger and dragon as well as an important 18th-century bell. The exterior is quite decorative and worth a few minutes to enjoy. It is of traditional grey brick walls with murals above the entrance. There is an delicate rooftop with dragon figures and centre pearl. You'll see impressive ceramic figures, some of the finest of the many HK temples as part of the facade. In the end, this is a good temple to visit if you plan to be in the Victoria Park area of Causeway Bay and enjoy visiting historically important buildings during your travels. You can also pass by the unique Lin Ka Fung Temple around 4-5 minute walk up Tung Lo Wan Road which passes just west of the Tin Hau Temple.

This is a very interesting temple that is well worth a pop in when walking around the local area. Best to plot a route for the day which includes the temple visit.
