A stone's throw from Tin Hau Temple is this handsome Edwardian police station (c 1922) with arcades and arches. You may have caught a glimpse of it in the film Rush Hour 2 . Some of its architectural features have been adapted for feng shui reasons – crime-fighting is a high-risk profession. For instance, the portico at the main entrance is set in an indented corner to better protect the building's inhabitants.
