Ping Yuen Tin Hau Temple is situated at Ping Che Village in Ta Kwu Ling. The construction year of the Temple is unknown. A bell in the Temple was inscribed with the 21st year of Qianlong reign (1756) of the Qing Dynasty, supporting that the Temple was built in or before that year. Ping Yuen Communal Hall and Sing Ping She Memorial Hall are on the right and left sides of the Temple respectively.

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.

Every year, neighbouring villages join together to hold traditional ceremonies to celebrate Tin Hau Festival (the 23rd day of the 3rd lunar month). The celebration activities last for a few days and one of the items is the staging of Cantonese opera performances.

Ping Yuen Tin Hau Temple, Ta Kwu Ling was rated Grade 3 historic building in 2010.
