Please help ... What is meant by 'off' here in this context? Thanks?

Context:

Located just off Po Tung Road, the temple is filled with worshippers during the annual Tin Hau Festival, in celebration of the birthday of the sea goddess, which falls on the 23rd day of the third lunar month.

    In connection with 'located' or similar word of 'placing', the expression 'just off' means 'very close to', 'a few metres from', and similar. The place used as reference is usually a well-known road or city square or similar, not a building - thus Po Tung Road in that instance.

    you have to leave Po Tung Road for a very short distance to get there.  It is not ON Po Tung Road, but it is really close to it.
