Pak She Tin Hau Temple, Cheung Chau photo

Pak She Tin Hau Temple is located to the north of Yuk Hui Temple. A bronze bell of the Temple inscribed with the 32nd year of the Qianlong reign (1767) of the Qing Dynasty is an evidence of the long history of the Temple.

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.

Religious ceremonies are held at Pak She Tin Hau Temple during Cheung Chau Jiao Festival (also known as the “Bun Festival”) held on the 8th day of the 4th lunar month every year. Tin Hau and Pak Tai of Yuk Hui Temple in Cheung Chau will be carried on armchairs marching through major streets on the island.

Pak She Tin Hau Temple, Cheung Chau was rated Grade 2 historic building in 2010.
