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.
