Went with some friends to check out this very popular tourist attraction. It was an ordinary day but really crowded. There are many many mainland Chinese tourists going by the coach load as well as locals visiting for prayers. The place is ran with some amount of efficiency. The approach into the halls is from the left (after the main... More

One of the many interesting venues, we ( the group from Serbia) had seen in 2008 year when sojourned in Hong Kong for two days, was the major tourist attraction, that is, the Wong Tai Sin Temple. It is located on the southern side of Lion Rock in the north of the grand region of Hong Kong, the Kowloon. We... More

One of the first few venues that I went in Hong Kong. The crowd is massive and you'll definitely avoid certain areas because of it. There are certain areas that are quiet. I do travel photography and managed to get couple of nice shots here. Other than that everything seems similar. Alot were rushing to touch the lion statue situated... More

This place was very interesting. Three religions (Taoism, Buddhism and Confucianism) all housed in one location! There's a splash of color from each of the decorated pillars and roofs! There's also a tranquil garden behind called The Good Wish Garden, where one can just sit and have a relaxing, peaceful moment surrounded by beautiful plants and a traditional Taoist garden... More

The temples are magnificent, colourful, interesting and contrasted against the backdrop of the surrounding apartment housing. Be sure to check out what year you were born, I was year of 'the Dog' find your statue and be photographed with it.

This place has been totally ruined by the Mainland tourists that come here in the coach load. It's a shame as this use to be a local temple which was quiet, beautiful and a place of worship. People are barging each other, taking selfies, taking group photos and treating this like it was Disneyland rather than a place of worship.... More

While Wong Tai Sin Temple doesn't offer much in itself, it is a MUST visit for visitors and tourists in Hong Kong, because it is an essential part of the Chinese culture. It offers some traditional style building and a chance to give praise to your ancestors - should you be the religious type. There are numerous street vendors ready... More

Wong Tai Sin Temple offers a religious reconnection with your Buddhist self. You will see a lot if people burning incense sticks and paper money, to offer to the gods or ancestors. They come here to ask for blessings and guidance.

We went on a weekday and got there just after 10am and it was terrific, not crowded at all but we did see many tourist buses arrive as we were leaving. It is quite surreal to be in the temple in amongst high rise buildings. The temple is beautiful and the garden very peaceful. We got the train to Wong... More
