Hau Kok Tin Hau Temple at Tin Hau Road in Tuen Mun Kau Hui was originally called “Mouth Horn Tin Hau Temple” in Chinese as it is located at a hillock like a horn stretched out to the mouth of the sea. The Temple was pushed inland and surrounded by factories since the 1970s and 1980s due to reclamation for development.
The Temple was built by villagers and members of the To clan of the area (the largest lineage in Tuen Mun), and has undergone various expansion and redevelopment projects over the years. An iron bell in the Temple, which was presented by a Zhejiang native in the 36th year of Kangxi reign (1697) of the Qing Dynasty, is the earliest historical evidence of the Temple.
Tin Hau Temple Plaza fronting the Temple is a comfortable public open space for large-scale recreational and cultural activities such as Tin Hau Festival Parade cum Fa Pau Lots Drawing Ceremony, Lunar New Year Fair and “Poon Choi” Feast.
Standing at the Plaza, Fa Pau Exhibition Hall displays full-size mock-ups of Fa Pau. Together with exhibition panels, images and photographs, the Hall offers an in-depth introduction of the Temple, Tin Hau Festival and related folk customs (e.g. Fa Pau Competition).
