Greatest temple in Hong Kong

It's well worth a visit, especially if you haven't been to a Chinese temple before. Easy access, it's right above the MTR station Wong Tai Sin.

It is crowded, colourful and good for a short visit unless you are a believer and spend time to offer prayers then you can spend longer time here. Just take care not to disturb others who are praying. Located on the Kwun Tong Line, it is easily accessible via exit B3.

I wish so much that I could give this more stars, unfortunately I just can't. When we visited it was so crowded that we could see nothing, had to queue to walk around, and literally saw nothing. I asked if this was a 'special' day, but no - apparently this is a common event over any weekend. I guess then... More

We went here on a whim as we were too tired to travel to the "big buddha". It was surprisingly moving. The setting is right outside a mall, oddly, but the devout people there helped us get into the right frame of mind. They encourage fortune-telling here, with a ritual involving numbered sticks. (You do have to pay for an... More

It was my great fortune that my colleague took me to this temple. You can feel the high spiritual energy around this place provided you respect religion, any religion. Just visit and show your respect and enjoy the divine peace and colourful temple structures.

If you haven't been to Chinese temples before, this can serve as an introduction to Chinese temples as it is on the subway line and easily accessible. There are nice zodiac statues outside and a decent garden and some rather gaudy decorations. This temple is also somewhat commercialized and may not be for those temple visiting veterans.

A very traditional Chinese temple. The place to be during Chinese New Year to make your offerings for a prosperous new year.

Excellent dive into Chinese culture. All the major religions are represented here. The temple is well preserved and an important part of Hong Kong's history.
