I loved our visit to the this temple as part of an exceptional days sightseeing in Hong Kong. The architecture of each aspect of the temple was simply stunning and like nothing I had seen before, including some very intricate details. I loved the gardens around the back most, but this was possibly as there were a number of shaded... More

There's signage everywhere and also helper to guide you. If you are praying, they'll tell you from which side start praying and ends where. Beautiful garden, ponds and artificial waterfall.

Went here at 4.30 pm and its almost closed. There's big statue of twelve Chinese character (shio) before entering the main hall. The main hall it self is very large and many people praying inside. Very easy to reach this temple, take MTR to Wong Tai Sin station and leave the station via exit B3 and after some stairs you... More

If you are visiting Chi Lin Nunnery, this is a good place to stop. The day we got there, the temple was packed with worshippers who were bussed in in droves. The air was filled with the smoke from incense and it was very interesting to watch the devout pray. It is a large, colorful complex surrounded by tall apartment... More

A popular place with tourist and locals. This temple is big and quite pretty. Near to subway. So it's easy to get to. Worth a visit if you like visiting temples.

Clear signs given. Interesting sights within the temple to visit and cool down on a warm afternoon. There is a 月老 which a lot of people actually put a red string, provided by the temple, to pray to find their true love. Signage were posted to teach worshippers how to do it correctly.

Easy to get to by MTR, a few stops north of TST. On every visit to HK I pop by and pay my respects by burning a few incense sticks. There are a few classic temple buildings, a garden and pond with fish, a pretty selection of bonsai trees - and some rather tacky tourist shops and fortune tellers that... More
