Tin Hau Temple

Tin Hau Temple

Tin Hau Temple is situated between Tang Chung Ling Ancestral Hall and Lo Wai. The date of construction is not known, but it underwent a full restoration in both 1913 and 1981. The temple is a two-hall building and the main hall is devoted to the worship of Tin Hau and her guards, Chin Lei Ngan (who had eyes to see a thousand li (Chinese miles)) and Shun Fung Yi (who had ears to hear a pin drop in heaven). Two bronze temple bells stand on the floor of the left chamber, one of which was cast in 1695 as a gift from the Tang clan to thank Tin Hau for adopting their sons. The other bell was cast in 1700 as an offering to gain the goddess's blessing for the young men of the clan when they travelled to the city to take the provincial examinations.Back to Map
