In 1874, Hong Kong was hit by the biggest typhoon in history, with numerous casualties; it only caused minor damage to Shau Kei Wan. Shau Kei Wan Fang believed that it was the goddess of Tin Hau who appeared for blessing, and rebuilt the Tin Hau Temple which was damaged during the storm. Legend has it that the Queen’s surname is Lin, who has been able to predict the weather since childhood and saved countless people in shipwrecks. The coastal villagers and fishermen regarded her as the patron saint of the sea and built temples to pray for good weather and a good harvest.
