Tin Hau Temple in Stanley

Over 70 temples are (at least partially) dedicated to Tin Hau in Hong Kong – and one of them stands in Stanley.

It was built in 1767 and said to be the oldest building in Hong Kong.

It has undergone a complete renovation since then, however, and is now a concrete pile (though the interior is traditional).

There were some nice statues to look at:

Also some tiger statues (not quite authentic, but still!):

Plus even a boat (junk):

Some great looking doors:
