Sok Kwu Wan Tin Hau Temple photo

Sok Kwu Wan Tin Hau Temple is located at Sok Kwu Wan Village of Lamma Island.

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.

According to the incense burner cast in the 6th year of the Daoguang reign (1826) of the Qing Dynasty, and a bell cast in the 21st year of the Guangxu reign (1895) of the Qing Dynasty in the Temple, it is believed that the Temple was constructed between 1826 and 1895. The Temple was destroyed by a fire in 2004, and fortunately, restoration was completed with donations by the warm-hearted worshippers and villagers. Today, the Temple is frequented by both worshippers and visitors.
