Old temple to the goddess of the sea. Surrounded by calm trees and a square for sitting and contemplating. Good quietness next to Nathan Road.

This small temple is definitely interesting and has a fantastic feeling of old HongKong about it. From it's spiraling incense hanging above your head to the 3 different sections of the temple, It's all very curious. There is a plaque/stand before you enter that I would recommend reading, as it tells you about the history of the temple. I would... More

Yau Ma Tei Tin Hau Temple is a touch of the traditional Chinese culture. Passing by this Temple while sight see Yau Ma Tei Temple Streat. A better time of visiting is late afternoon. Can visit the place in day light, and catch up with the famous Temple Street Market in the evening.

We travelled on the Big bus and this is one of their stops. The park that is in front of the a temple is lovely and well maintained. Free to enter but respect should be given as in any place of worship. It's not large by any stretch of imagination but very colourful with rich red colours. Attendant very polite... More

This is a lovely little temple in a tiny park in the midst of a very big and noisy city. Here you can see people in prayer or just relaxing in the park. Join in or observe but do so respectfully. We asked if we could take photos and they were very happy to let us do so. Out of... More

A local, quiet place for tourists to know more about Hong Kong. Yau Ma Tei area also a place which is away from typical tourist spot. This is a place for some people they really want to see the another face of this commercial city.

Owing to historical setting, this temple was originally built as old as or even older than the famous trunk road Nathan Road was built when Hong Kong was handed over to the British Government. It is open from day till late night, and was popular among worshippers owing to its location. If you manage to visit one and the only... More

It is at the Yau Ma Tei MTR station and easy to go there. It is a traditional Chinese Temple. Not very big. However, you can know more about the Chinese culture and there religion after visiting it.

In the day time, the Tin Hau Temple is one of the holiest, most respectful site in Hong Kong. There is the famous temple worshipping Tin Hau, meaning Queen of Heaven in Chinese. People go in to worship the Lady for all sorts of reasons. The place is nice with trees providing shelter and old folks like to chat and... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Jordan / Yau Ma Tei
The Jordan and Yau Ma Tei neighbourhood is where you will find some of the more authentic areas of Hong Kong. Not as glamourous or busy as its neighbours Mong Kok to the north or Tsim Sha Tsui to the south, Yau Ma Tei is often mistakenly overlooked by visitors on their trips to Hong Kong. Exploring parts of this area makes you feel like you’ve been transported back in time. A large part of the neighbourhood draws from the rich history of Temple Street, stretching from Jordan to Yau Ma Tei, where a mix of dai pai dongs (outdoor restaurants), market stalls, fortune tellers and old karaoke bars bring out the history and culture of the area. The neighbourhood is a showcase of diversity – different ethnicities, cultures, and a mix of old and new.
