Lonely Planet review

This large, incense-filled sanctuary built in the 19th century is one of Hong Kong’s most famous temples dedicated to the goddess of the sea. The public square before it 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.
