The Tianhou Temple in Yaumatei is the largest Tianhou Temple in Kowloon, Hong Kong. It is a second-class historical building in Hong Kong. The temple was first built in 1865 (four years of Tongzhi reign in Qing Dynasty). It was not at Banyan Tree Head at first, but near Guanchung Street Market. It moved to Banyan Tree Head in 1876 (Guangxu 2). The Tianhou Temple in Yaumadi is located on the side of Zhongfang Street near Yaumadi Temple Street.

According to records, Tianhou Temple in Yaumadi is the largest temple in Kowloon District. The temple is located in the coastal area of Yaumatei in the past. After the large reclamation project, it has become today's temple street. At present, the residents here no longer live by fishing, but they still worship the Queen of Heaven. It is said that the queen of heaven, named Lin Mingmo, has been able to predict the weather since childhood. She saved countless people in the shipwreck. Coastal villagers and fishermen all regard her as the guardian God of the sea and build temples to worship. Nearby Hotels with good cost performance, such as Seascape, Black Tea House, Prince and so on can be recommended. As for food, the vicinity of Miao Street belongs to the lower class of Hong Kong society, but belongs to the downtown area of Hong Kong. Restaurants near Miao Street are gourmet food, and all kinds of tea restaurants can not be counted. The most famous one is the Metropolitan Restaurant, where Hong Kong film gangster gathering restaurants have been filmed for decades; the four-season cooked-up meals beside the Black Tea Hotel on Ramada Street are super delicious, and the Qing Dynasty is comparable to nine beef briskets. Tang Bingwang, Niuzai in Temple Street of Nethongdian, etc. If you have leisure time, you can also go to Temple Street for a stroll in the evening. The Temple of Heavenly Queens in Yaumatei has heard of the annual "Guanyin Kaiku" Bao Festival, attracting a large number of good faith to visit. When we went there, the incense should be said not to be particularly vigorous or very cold. There is an open space in front of Tianhou Palace Gate and there are big trees. Many people will sit here, chat and take a walk. Temple Street is close to the fence roots of Tianhou Temple in Rongshutou. There are twenty or thirty fortune-telling stalls. There are old and talented people, scientific people with suits and shoes, computer distribution, and "Gypsy Girls" who are dedicated to serving romantic girls. We also went in and worshipped. Although we know that fate is in our hands, worship of God and Buddha can also give some comfort to our soul.
Tianhou Temple is located at No. 10 Tianhou Temple Road, Causeway Bay, Hong Kong. It was built by Dai Shibo in the early Qing Dynasty. At that time it was called "Hongxianglu Temple in Yanchuan Bay". The title of Tianhou Temple is still owned by Dai clan (Dai's Futang Co., Ltd.). The "Chinese Temple Ordinance" passed in 1928 stipulates that all temples in Hong Kong are managed by the Chinese Temple Committee, but Hongxianglu Tianhou Temple is still exempted by the Dai clan. Self-management is a very special example. The main worship gods in the Temple of Tianhou in Causeway Bay are the Empress of Heaven, and the other worship gods are Guanyin, Zhengcai and Baogong. The nearby subway station is also named "Tianhou Station".
It seems that Hong Kong people still attach great importance to incense and incense, so there are many well-known Taotai temples. But to be honest, I've only been to Huang Da Xian Temple. This goddess temple in Yaumadi, although Yaumadi has been there several times, it seems that there is no impression. My friend said it's good. Next time I'll go and see it.
Tianhou Temple in Yau Ma Tei is the largest Tianhou Temple in Kowloon, Hong Kong. It is free of charge from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. every day. The streets south and north of Tianhou Temple were named by the government as "Miaonan Street" and "Miaobei Street" and then merged into Miao Street. Miao Street only has night markets, so it is suggested to visit Yaumadi in the afternoon. Visit Tianhou Temple at 16 o'clock, have dinner and go shopping in Temple Street. The Yau Ma Tei temple is located in the middle hall of the temple of heaven. The two sides are built in Yau Ma Tei Guanyin building, Yau Ma Tei Town God's Temple, Yau Ma Tei Guanyin tower and Yau Ma Tei college. Although it is the largest Tin Hou Temple in Kowloon, Hong Kong, it is not very sincere. It is enough for ordinary tourists to visit it for 15 minutes. However, there are abundant historical relics in the temple, including stone lions in 1860, Temple monuments in 1865, 1875, 1890 and 1916, copper bells cast in 1888 and 1897, and a lot of wood and stone carvings. The Shiwan tiled ridge on the top of the temple in 1916 still exists today. What attracts me most is the dish incense hanging over my head, which is very special.
Not too big temples, not too many people. The square outside the temple is much bigger than the temple.
Personally, I feel very effective. After offering incense to the gods, the rest of the journey is particularly smooth. The customs clearance is 20 minutes faster than the self-help passage. You might as well believe that you bought Hong Kong for ten Hong Kong dollars and added two Hong Kong dollars of perfume to Guanyin. Sincerity is soul.
The Temple of Heavenly Queen in Yaumadi, which we see today, has actually been relocated several times. In the past, Yaumadi was a sandbar near Shallow Bay, where fishermen lived in peace. Fishermen believed in the goddess of the sea, so they built a temple to worship the goddess of the sea. The Temple of the goddess of the sea was built in Yaumadi for about 1800 years. In 1864, the government rebuilt the Yauma area and moved the Temple to the top of the banyan tree. In 1890, Tianhou Temple was relocated again until 1929, when it was taken over by the three courts of Donghua, which has its present scale. The Temple of Heaven Queen in Yau Ma Tei is a large-scale temple in Hong Kong, and its incense is also very strong.
When you come across temple street, you will find peace in the bustle. The incense is still very prosperous.
