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

Nice temple tucked in a busy street. Do get inside. Huge tree at the back of the temple. Go upstairs for more rooms including the very nice office for the person in charge.
