Located at Tin Hau Temple Road, Tin Hau Temple in Causeway Bay is dedicated to Tin Hau. 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.

The year when the Temple was built cannot be verified. The oldest relic preserved inside the Temple is a historical bell cast in the 12th year of the Qianlong reign (1747) of the Qing Dynasty. The name plaque above the main entrance and the accompanying pair of couplets, as well as historical plaques, an incense burner and a carved stone offering table, etc. inside the Temple are all dating back to the Qing Dynasty. The Temple is a 2-hall building with 2 side halls. The roof ridges are exquisitely decorated, and the “cut-and-paste shard works” that make up some of the decorations and couplets in the Temple are a rarity in Hong Kong.

Tin Hau Temple in Causeway Bay was declared a monument in 1982.
