This large, incense-filled sanctuary built in the 19th century is one of Hong Kong’s most famous Tin Hau (Goddess of the Sea) temples. The public square out front is Yau Ma Tei’s communal heart where fishermen once laid out their hemp ropes to sun next to Chinese banyans that today shade chess players and elderly men. Yau Ma Tei Police Station is a listed blue-and-white structure one block to the east along Public Square St.
