Lung Yeuk Tau Tin Hau Temple, Fanling photo

Lung Yeuk Tau Tin Hau Temple in Fanling is situated between Tang Chung Ling Ancestral Hall and Lo Wai. Its year of construction is unknown.

The Temple is a traditional 2-hall, 3-bay building with a central courtyard. It is built of grey bricks and has timber-framed tiled roofs. The façade is exquisitely decorated with plaster mouldings and murals of auspicious motifs and folklore. The main hall of the Temple is dedicated to Tin Hau and her guards, Chin Lei Ngan (whose is believed to be able to see things thousand miles away) and Shun Fung Yi (whose is said to be able to hear sounds as far away as from heaven). Dedicated to To Tei (the Earth God), the right chamber has 2 historic bells, one of which was cast in the 34th year of the Kangxi reign (1695) of the Qing Dynasty as a gift from the Tang clan to thank Tin Hau for adopting their sons. The other one was cast in the 39th year of the Kangxi reign (1700) as an offering to Tin Hau for blessing the young men of the clan when they travelled to the city for taking the provincial examinations.

Tin Hau, also known as “Matsu”, was said to be a native in Fujian Province called Lam Mak Leung during the Song Dynasty (960 - 1279). According to legend, she had gifted power and saved many people from sea disasters. The seafarers therefore worship Tin Hau and regard her as their patron saint.

Lung Yeuk Tau Tin Hau Temple, Fanling was declared a monument in 2002.
