This complex of temples and gardens was well worth visiting: the buildings are beautiful, the main courtyards are buzzing with worshippers and smoky with incense; the gardens behind are beautifully serene, with walkways over water creating a seemingly huge space to explore out of a relatively small patch. Watching the turtles swim around was fun too!

The temple is located very near to the MTR station. There are a lot of devotees and tourist during this period. You can get your divination lot deciphered at a row of fortune teller located to the left side of the compound.

This temple is very popular to HK people. It is generally OK for sightseeing. I am not sure what Buddha is displayed inside the temple as there are many of them.

The WTS temple is very traditional and BIG! They have different temple section housing different dieties and a big garden behind it. Too bad the weather was hot, and humid, else will be good to sit there relax and watch the butterflies and fishes. After visiting the temple you can cool down at the mall beside it. there are shops... More
