Went here on the recommendation of a local.......busy, noisy, incense hanging in the air and a wonderful experience. Offerings to the temple were being made as people lit incense and walked about in prayer.

I went here with a few friends to light some incense and make some prayers with friends. It's a great atmosphere at weekends but with so many people walking around with lit incense, make sure not to get burnt / have your clothes singed! Outside the main precinct are the statues for each of the 12 "animal" years. It's quite... More

Despite the throngs of people this temple is actually incredibly peaceful. The scene is slightly odd considering the numerous high rises that surround this seemingly quaint Chinese temple. The temple itself has people worshipping which I think always makes the visit more fascinating and a peaceful garden of sorts with a man made waterfall at the back. Couldn't be easier... More

The garden behind the large temple area is really pretty. There are number of bridges to cross, and the flora is very well kept, you can see a peak at the greenhouses in one corner. There are turtles in the fountain as well. The temple area is very large, the Zodiac statues are a treat.

This is well worth a visit. I love the smell of incense, the sounds of people praying and chanting. The architecture is amazing. Go and have your fortune told as well.

Easy to access. Just get out from Wong Tai Sin MTR station. The temple was crowded during weekend. Nice architecture. Good to have short visit. You can have lunch near shopping center just across the road.

Wasn't that psyched about it, but it was alright. Went to a fortune teller there, I would've probably been a better fortune teller but still a fun thing to do there.

The temple was well-maintained with a lovely garden. I visited in the morning on a weekday and had a good walk with fewer people; there were more tourists towards later part of the morning. There were also many stalls selling prayer offerings as well as good luck charms / toy wind mills that would make interesting souvenirs.
