It is the most fascinating place located in the centre of the city. It goes well into the life of the lower classes, in where you can have the taste of most traditional goddess worshipping style and nearby, you can taste the most delicious snacks at a very low price at Temple Street. You can also buy lots of interesting... More

The temple is very traditional Chinese one. And there are many fortune telling shops around the temple. They open in the afternoon and are become busy at night. You can find many different styles of fortune tellers there, even the one use a bird to predict your life!

The surrounding Location is very dirty. Temple is very interesting. Large incense coils burn from the ceiling. Very smokey inside.

First of all I am not a great fan of temple. Secondly, there are many people gathering in the park outside the temple. Honestly they keep the place so dirty that you will not want to get inside!

Old temple to the goddess of the sea. Surrounded by calm trees and a square for sitting and contemplating. Good quietness next to Nathan Road.

This small temple is definitely interesting and has a fantastic feeling of old HongKong about it. From it's spiraling incense hanging above your head to the 3 different sections of the temple, It's all very curious. There is a plaque/stand before you enter that I would recommend reading, as it tells you about the history of the temple. I would... More

Yau Ma Tei Tin Hau Temple is a touch of the traditional Chinese culture. Passing by this Temple while sight see Yau Ma Tei Temple Streat. A better time of visiting is late afternoon. Can visit the place in day light, and catch up with the famous Temple Street Market in the evening.

We travelled on the Big bus and this is one of their stops. The park that is in front of the a temple is lovely and well maintained. Free to enter but respect should be given as in any place of worship. It's not large by any stretch of imagination but very colourful with rich red colours. Attendant very polite... More

This is a lovely little temple in a tiny park in the midst of a very big and noisy city. Here you can see people in prayer or just relaxing in the park. Join in or observe but do so respectfully. We asked if we could take photos and they were very happy to let us do so. Out of... More

Staying in Jordan / Yau Ma Tei

Neighbourhood Profile
Jordan / Yau Ma Tei
The Jordan and Yau Ma Tei neighbourhood is where you will find some of the more authentic areas of Hong Kong. Not as glamourous or busy as its neighbours Mong Kok to the north or Tsim Sha Tsui to the south, Yau Ma Tei is often mistakenly overlooked by visitors on their trips to Hong Kong. Exploring parts of this area makes you feel like you’ve been transported back in time. A large part of the neighbourhood draws from the rich history of Temple Street, stretching from Jordan to Yau Ma Tei, where a mix of dai pai dongs (outdoor restaurants), market stalls, fortune tellers and old karaoke bars bring out the history and culture of the area. The neighbourhood is a showcase of diversity – different ethnicities, cultures, and a mix of old and new.
