A very nice and simple temple. This temple used to be at the ocean front some times ago. The ocean gave way to modernization and became roads and building. Fishermen and seamen used to come here to pray for their good fortune and safety. Many...More

This was the first temple I visited in Hong Kong. The things that stood out for me were it’s set right on bustling Queens Road East, you can spot the boulders it’s set on, and has an appealing interior. All good but it’s only really...More

It is not that impressive and somewhat run-down and untidy but worth a look if in Wan Chai. It is located on Queens Road East amid taller buildings.

Overcrowded and loud Wan Chai you find this sacred place of peace even more attractive and pulling you in, meditating a little bit before entering the colorful world of HK once again. A must see for everyone staying in Central.

Hong Kong is full of contrasts and this temple nestled between the high rises is an illustration of that. There are two small rooms inside with the typical incense smell. Worth taking a look.

It is said that your wish will become true if you pray sincerely here. It is believed that the fortune telling here is accurate. Do come and see.

Hung Shing Temple honours the god of the same name. He was a government official from the Tang Dynasty and, as a god, protects against natural disasters. This is quite a typical little HK temple. It is nice, but not worth a special trip. Chances...More
