Origin of Name

During the Qing Dynasty, a temple named Tin Hau Temple was built in the middle of the temple street, which is called Yau Ma Tei Tin Hau Temple. On the other hand, Temple Street is also known as “Men’s Street” because of its similar nature to “Ladies Market” in Mongkok and its male-dominated visitors. The younger generation in Hong Kong mostly use “old temple” as the common name of temple street.
