Tin Hau Temple in Yau Ma Tei
This is the temple that gives Temple Street its name. Like many things in Hong Kong, it's a set of contradictions -- loudly under renovation and construction, even as there's a sense of quiet contemplation. It's fairly inland now, but started as a place of worship for fishermen, when this was right along the coast. (Since then, there has been much landfill.)
