Amazing Temple in Shenzhen
Jun 2019 • Family
Chiwan Ancient Temple is a beautiful place to visit! It is located about 15 minutes away from Shekou by taxicab. The colors, candles, and art work are truly amazing. Furthermore, the Tomb of the Boy Emperor and the Chiwan Opium War Fort are located only a few minutes away from the temple by taxicab. These cultural relics are not to be missed while visiting Shenzhen.

One of the few historical sites in Shenzhen
Mar 2017 • Business
The Tianhou temple in the Chiwan district of Shenzhen is one of the few major historical sites that you can visit in Shenzhen. Located near the Chiwan port (far western end of Shenzhen - at the end of Line 2 of the metro), the temple is easily accessible to the rest of Shenzhen. Whilst many of the buildings on the site were rebuilt in the last few decades, the temple has existed on the site since at least the end of the Song dynasty in 1300AD. Well worth taking the time to visit.

Small museum in a small temple
Oct 2016
Taking the MTR all the way to Chiwan just for this may not be worth your time, as there is nothing else to do and the way is quite long. But if you're already in the temple, do visit the museum as well. There are a few artifacts and that's it.

Tiny museum located in Tianhou temple in Chiwan. Some nice artifacts but very small. Since you'll already be in the temple you may as well look.

One of chinas most sacred temples. A must see
Jan 2016 • Couples
Visited this along with 2 other sights in chiwan. This is an ancient sacred temple and was worth the trip. The most authentic temple I've seen in shenzhen so far. The art work statues and carvings are brilliant. There is a wish pond full of koi karp which was very relaxing. It's 15rmb entry but well worth it. The museum was closed sadly so cannot comment on that. I went on a weekday and it was very quiet. Highly recommended

Visited One of China's famous Sacred Temples! A great History Trip!
Apr 2015 • Family
We visited the Tin Hau Temple but unfortunately we didn't have time to visit the Tin Hau museum. We knew very little about the history of the temple. However we were told that it is well known for its historical links with the last Emperor of Southern Song Dynasty.

We got there by car and the entry fee was 15 RMB each and free for elderly, aged 10 yr or under. There were plenty car parking spaces on the day we visited the place because it was a normal working day in China. On holidays and weekends it would be full and advice had been given to visitors that choices of transport should be public (nearest MTR Station Chiwan) or tour buses.

I particularly enjoyed taking photos of the traditional Ming Dynasty's Architectural designs and learned about the history and Feng-shui of the historical buildings. Legends has it that the water from the sacred well could cure many illnesses. Also the fortune telling is famous for it's accuracy for all the believers!!! As for a skeptic myself, I gave it a try and it was an interesting experience. I asked about a major project in China which I have been working on for almost a year. I wasn't sure that whether I should keep on pressuring it. Within hours I received an unexpected phone call regarding this matter and my client wanted to setup a meeting with me......But 1st fortune telling result suggested it was likely to be bad news! However the 2nd one indicated that better things were coming, PHEW!

I would recommend you to go there with a group of friends or elderly relatives for a morning visit. There were also famous places such as the Tomb of the last Emperor of the Southern Song Dynasty...nearby for tourists to visit which we also visited.

Decent temple
Oct 2013 • Couples
Larger-sized and fairly historical temple in Chiwan. When I went it was undergoing renovations, which took away from the attraction. Still, it isn't bad and worth a look if you happen to be in Chiwan. Suggest combining it with a visit to the old fort (if you can find it) because there is no other reason to be in Chiwan unless you live or work there, despite the proximity to sea world.

If you are near the area
Feb 2013 • Solo
This place is a short walk from the Chiwan Mtr station (~5 mins walk). The entrance fee is 15 yuan. There's a main temple and incense offering area and some surrounding houses with mini exhibits and shopping ( selling porcelain). The main temple area is pretty nice but otherwise the exhibits were not very well maintained and the place was a little dark ( poor lighting ). I would only recommend to check it out if you are around the area.
