Old Temple Square @ Yau Ma Tei 油麻地 天后廟

This Tin Hau (Goddess of the Sea) Temple, similar to many others in Hong Kong, was once fronting the sea, however as Hong Kong developed, it's now surrounded by buildings.  The temple square is shaded by large Banyan trees with their aerial roots hanging down everywhere. These trees provide a nice shaded place for local worshippers and oversea tourists to gather here every day. 


  1. Love the sketch...the colors and the looseness. Do you live in Hong Kong or are you visiting?

  2. thanks for your comment. I do live in Hong Kong. A regular Hongkonger who loves sketching live scenes and doing paintings:)
