The Tin Hau Temple in Joss House Bay, sometimes referred to as Tai Miu is Hong Kong's oldest and largest Tin Hau Temple. It is also said to be the most popular Tin Hau temple both for fishermen and for others in Hong Kong.
The sea-facing temple is located at Fat Tong Mun, on the shore of Joss House Bay, near the south end of Clear Water Bay Peninsula. Joss House Bay derives its name from the temple, or joss house. The Chinese name of Joss House Bay, Tai Miu Wan, literally means "the bay of the large temple".
