Description

Constructed in the early 19th century by Cantonese settlers, this temple honors the goddess of the sea, Thien Hau. The temple roof is decorated with porcelain figures that represent scenes from Chinese mythology, delicately worked.Over the main worship room, hundreds of immense conical coiled incense hang from the ceiling, permeating the atmosphere with a smoky haze and an intense odour. It would be easy to stroll straight by the temple, situated on a busy lane, but it's well worth waiting to see the architecture and interior.
