There are three temples in Stanley, all in
close walking distance of the market. While you are in the area
don't fail to visit at least one, or why not visit all?
Tin Hau Temple
Just west of Stanley market, adjoining the
Plaza, is this 1767 temple was supposedly built by a
famous pirate. The oldest of the more than 70 Tin Hau
temples in Hong Kong it is quite a modern building due to
repeated building and rebuilding.
Pak Tai Temple
The most distant of the temples it is still within 20 minutes
walk, much of it within the green Stanley Ma Hang Park.
The last little bit is down some very steep steps though so this
does not count as accessible. If that doesn't bother you then it
is well worth the visit for even though the temple itself is
tiny the location right on the edge of the cliffs overlooking
the sea is without equal in the area. If you can't reach
the temple itself there are good views of it
from Blake Pier.
Kwun Yum Temple
Also accessible via Stanley ma Hang Park this temple is up
the hill and features a large statue of the goddess.
Tai Wong Temple
Next to the roundabout at the end of Stanley Main Street.
