"The Tin Hau Temple in Causeway Bay was built by the Tai family probably in the early 18th century. The Tai family are Hakkas from Guangdong who first settled in Kowloon in a village now lost beneath the former Kai Tak Airport. The family used to go to Causeway Bay to gather grass and, according to legends, some members of the family found a statue of Tin Hau in the rocks near the shore. They then erected a shelter for it and, as the shrine became popular with the boat people who made donations, a proper temple building was subsequently constructed"
