Tam Kung (譚公, literally "Lord Tam") is a sea deity worshiped in Hong Kong and Macau.

A temple dedicated to this deity is located at the end of Shau Kei Wan Man Street East, Shau Kei Wan, Hong Kong, and was originally a small shrine. Local people raised money to construct it in 1905 and reconstructed it many times afterwards. The statue of Tam Kung, which was first worshipped among the other gods in the temple, was formerly positioned in the Tam Kung Temple in Tam Kung Road in Kowloon City. There is a big rock in front of the temple and is believed to be Tam Kung's magic stamp. Local residents and fishermen are the sincere worshippers. On the birthday of Tam Kung (8th of April in Lunar calendar), they will have a celebration and play a so called "kung fu" show which is a major part of the celebration. - quote from wkikpedia
