Tin Hau temple at Sok Kwu Wan

New Territories Hong Kong

Created By: HKBU


In 1826 the Tin Hau temple at Sok Kwu Wan was built. The goddess Tin Hau is widely revered as the protector of fishermen. It burned down in 2004, but was rebuilt the following year. Tin Hau sits in all her splendour, watching over all who go to sea. Inside the temple is a specimen of a rare Oar Fish, 2.74 metres long and weighing in at 18.14 kilograms when it was caught by local fishermen in 2001.
