The Tin Hau Temple in Causeway Bay is one of the Tin Hau temples in Hong Kong. It is located at 10 Tin Hau Temple Road, Causeway Bay, east of Victoria Park, in Eastern District, on Hong Kong Island. The temple has given its name to the MTR station serving it (Island line), and consequently the neighboring area of Tin Hau.
The original temple dates back to 1747 (the date of the temple bell) and was built by members of the Tai family, a family of Hakkas from Guangdong, who first settled in Kowloon. Legend has it, the family used to travel by boat to Causeway Bay to gather grass and discovered an incense burner found floating miraculously on the sea. This incident gave rise to one of the pre-colonial names for Hong Kong Island, Hung Heung Lo (Red Incense-burner island).

This is a small Temple dedicated to the god of the sea Tin Hau. You can buy candles and incense here that you can light up and offer when you do your prayers. There's also another altar for kuanima. The temple staff are friendly and helpful but they're not really good in English. This is I believe the oldest Tin Hau Temple in HK.

A nice temple to see away from busy shopping streets of Hong Kong.
