Temple by the Sea 鯉魚門天后宮

Temple by the Sea 鯉魚門天后廟

Hong Kong has always been a maritime city and temples built for the goddess of the sea are scattered around the city.  However, many of these temples originally built at the waterfront are now far away from the shorelines due to reclamation works that have been carried for a century.  This temple is a rare one as it still stands at the waterfront, guarding the passing ships at the eastern entrance to the Victoria Harbour.
