Temple Street is a street located in the areas of Jordan and Yau Ma Tei in Kowloon, Hong Kong. Temple Street is known for its night market and as one of the busiest flea markets at night in the territory.

The Temple Street Night Market lies in the Yau Ma Tei, Jordan part of the street. Popular with tourists and locals alike in the evening, it is also common to see the place crowded at dusk. Temple Street Night Market sells cheap merchandise and food items. Tourists can do shopping and enjoy a Cantonese opera show. The place is sometimes known as "Men's Street".

When the sun goes down, the traders have already laid out their wares and the opera singers and fortune tellers begin to emerge. Welcome to the Temple Street Night Market, a popular street bazaar, named after a Tin Hau temple located in the centre of its main drag, and a place so steeped in local atmosphere that Temple Street Night Market has served as the backdrop to many a memorable movie.
Trinkets, tea ware, electronics, watches, menswear, jade and antiques are scrutinised and haggled over, while claypot rice, seafood, noodles and other treats are consumed with gusto.

The unique characteristics of Temple Street make it a desirable location for filming. It is often used as a setting to portray all walks of life in Hong Kong. Also, many gangster films depict the place as a street of crime. The place is featured in films such as Queen of Temple Street (1990) and The Prince of Temple Street (1992).

Temple Street also plays a prominent role in the Stephen Chow film The God of Cookery, the Fiona Sit series C'est La Vie, Mon Chéri, and the TVB series Street Fighter which starred Hacken Lee and Edmond Leung.
