On the same day that we went to the Aberdeen Floating Village, we also stopped by the Tin Hau Temple in Rupulse Bay because my mom was super keen to see the big golden fish. What can I say except that they sold this fish really well on the various tour packets she read through when figuring out what to see while in Hong Kong. :)
The Tin Hau Temple is quite small and sits on the far end of the beach. The temple grounds contains many statues of important gods, goddesses, and other auspicious figures. There is of course the golden fish with its mouth wide open for folks to toss coins into in hopes that good fortune will follow. There is also the red bridge of longevity that is supposed to increase the days in your life every time you walk over the bridge. There were also several animals with blessings written on them that people rubbed for good luck.

Rubbed raw for luck.
I love the bold, bright colors.
