Lam Tsuen

In the advent of the Chinese New Year, villagers pray for year-long peace by tying incense

 papers and sacrificial offerings to stones which are then thrown up on the banyan

branches. Located at Fong Ma Po, the Tin Hau Temple in Lam Tsuen was built around the

time of Emperor Qin Loong of the Ching Dynasty and is the largest temple of its kind in Tai

Po. Two sides of the main hall stand respectively the Hall for the Civil God of Literacy and

the Martial God (the Man Mo Hall) and the Temple for Justice built in honour of 12

noble-hearted men who had protected the Lam Tsuen villages in the past.
