The Tin Hau Temple in Causeway Bay (銅鑼灣天后廟) is one of the Tin Hau temples in Hong Kong. It is located at 10 Tin Hau Temple Road, Causeway Bay, east of Victoria Park, in Eastern District, on Hong Kong Island. The temple has given its name to the MTR station serving it (Island Line), and consequently the neighboring area of Tin Hau.


The temple was built probably in the early 18th century by the Tai family, a family of Hakkas from Guangdong, who first settled in Kowloon.[1] The temple, now located inland as a consequence of land reclamation, was originally on the waterfront.[2]


The Tin Hau Temple in Causeway Bay is a declared monument[1] since 1982.[3]
