Characteristics:
Located at the Island House Interchange, the Tai Wong Yeh Temple at Yuen Chau Tsai has a long history dating back to the mid-Qing Dynasty when villagers in Chik Mei north of the Shum Chun River erected a stone tablet on the northern shore of Yuen Chau Tsai. In the late Qing Dynasty, a group of fishermen raised funds to build the Tai Wong Yeh Temple for worship by local fishermen at the present location.

The Tai Wong Yeh Festival falls on 4 occasions each year, namely, the 5th day, 15th day and 25th day of the 2nd month of the lunar calendar and 6th day of the 5th month of the lunar calendar. Formal celebrations have been held on the 6th day of the 5th month of the lunar calendar since the 1930s. Cantonese opera performances are staged as part of the celebration, which is a major event for fishermen as well as local residents. An opening ceremony of the Tai Wong Yeh Temple was held in 1988 to mark its renovation.
