There are several Tin Hau Temples in the Hong Kong area; it appears that everyone that visits this temple is rating the similarly named Temple in Kowloon on Public Square and Nathan (I have also been to that temple). This is on the path from the Shau Kei Wan MTR to the Museum of Coastal Defences in Hong Kong. Photos available to be posted.

Discovered this little temple complex by chance, although it is a small temple and won't take long to look around it is still definitely worth a visit. The architecture is beautiful, and is still used for daily worship.
