While temples dedicated to the Goddess of the Sea are found in coastal areas, this fine example is conveniently located in Yau Ma Tei. We learnt during our visit that this temple was also by the harbor but massive land reclamation had moved the coast far away. What we found most interesting was the traditional interior decor and spiral joss... More

The temple is very traditional Chinese one. And there are many fortune telling shops around the temple. They open in the afternoon and are become busy at night. You can find many different styles of fortune tellers there, even the one use a bird to predict your life!

The surrounding Location is very dirty. Temple is very interesting. Large incense coils burn from the ceiling. Very smokey inside.

First of all I am not a great fan of temple. Secondly, there are many people gathering in the park outside the temple. Honestly they keep the place so dirty that you will not want to get inside!

Old temple to the goddess of the sea. Surrounded by calm trees and a square for sitting and contemplating. Good quietness next to Nathan Road.

Neighbourhood Profile
Jordan / Yau Ma Tei
The Jordan and Yau Ma Tei neighbourhood is where you will find some of the more authentic areas of Hong Kong. Not as glamourous or busy as its neighbours Mong Kok to the north or Tsim Sha Tsui to the south, Yau Ma Tei is often mistakenly overlooked by visitors on their trips to Hong Kong. Exploring parts of this area makes you feel like you’ve been transported back in time. A large part of the neighbourhood draws from the rich history of Temple Street, stretching from Jordan to Yau Ma Tei, where a mix of dai pai dongs (outdoor restaurants), market stalls, fortune tellers and old karaoke bars bring out the history and culture of the area. The neighbourhood is a showcase of diversity – different ethnicities, cultures, and a mix of old and new.
