Characteristics:
There are several Tin Hau temples in Hong Kong. This one in Sham Shui Po was constructed in 1901 at Yee Kuk Street. As the street is near the waterfront, the temple has attracted a lot of worshippers, especially during the Tin Hau Festival on the 23rd day of the 3rd month of the lunar calendar.

Tin Hau, the Goddess of the Sea, was the 6th daughter of "Lam Yuen", a Fujian official in the Sung Dynasty. She met a Taoist monk who taught her the way to become an immortal. She is said to have succeeded by the age of 20. The fishmen believe that Tin Hau is their patron deity and they pray to her for good catches.
