A friend of mine last year took me to this temple. It is such a beautiful serene place to go to. There were a lot of people, but nothing that caused major delays in seeing everything. I did ask some questions to the temple gods and was initially suspicious/reserved about the answers. However 8 months later things were coming true.... More

This temple was right across from our hotel right on the main street, it's a lovely and a very old temple visited mostly by locals..... Very peaceful and plain beautiful..... Go in and say a prayer for your love ones, and light some incense...... Maybe a prayer to make thru Chinese Customs without hassles!????

Here is my review on Wong Tai Sin Temple: - Attraction Highlight: A lively temple for people to make a wish come true by kneeling and holding a bamboo bucket with a bunch of number stick. The Wong Tai Sin temple is accessible by MTR directly. Attraction Tip: Once enter the arch then turn left up the stairs, then you... More

Right outside the MTR station. This seems to be a high volume temple with lots of people visiting. They have a system where you are directed to go one way around the temple. Lots of incense been burnt . Worth a visit if in the area but there are quieter temples in other areas of Hong Kong

one of the highlight of HK. We spend a couple of hours there enjoying the place, the temple and the garden. It is a must go place to take picture. It is very easy to access by subway. Extensive bonsai collection

This is very worth a visit. It’s very near the MTR stop of the same name. There was an easy walk up to the temple, and once on the grounds, we found the place teeming with visitors and worshipers. The temple and its many furnishing were extremely colorful and ornate. There were many larger-than-life sized bronze statues of the various... More

The Wong Tai Sin Temple’s is the home to three religions (Taoism, Buddhism and Confucianism) its natural setting and beautifully ornamented buildings make it as much a scenic attraction as an important religious centre. So

Temple is just on above the Wong Tai Sin MTR station. You cannot miss it just follow the constant stream of crowd. The place is famous for prayers and for those seeking answers like me. I am not a fortune telling believer but I gave it a try... The fortune poem sticks are free for everyone to use and just... More
