Wong Tai Sin, a popular tourist destination, especially tourists from China and Taiwan, is a Taoist Temple and Shrine. It is popular because it is famed for prayers being answered through "kau cim". Believers say a prayer, light an incense stick, and shake a bamboo cylinder and a stick will drop out, you then will take the stick to one... More

Despite always staying within easy travelling distance on the MTR each time we stay in Hong Kong, we just never got round to visiting this temple, until this time... A simple connection via the MTR and we were within walking distance of the temple. Although the site isn't as grand as temples in, say, Beijing, it is majestic enough to... More

A beautiful intricate traditional Chinese temple. Make sure you walk through to the hidden Good Wish Garden, a quiet pond that’s perfect to sit around.

some place was under renovation and it was raining. my sister was asking me to give up on going to temple but we push to go here and i think it was worth it! blending architecture and the nature was so fascinating. Seeing people praying was some kind of performance for me.

This is one of the oldest temples in Hong kong is frequent by keen worshippers, local and aboard, to make wishes, blessings and praying. Don't go there when there is a buddhist celebration or special occasion when the whole temple will be flooded with people. When you sincerely pray, your requests will be answered, so many of the keen worshippers... More

The Wong Tai Sin Temple is fascinating with all the scents and people praying. Also the buildings and nice colours are attractive. A bit hidden is a Chinese Winter Gardenin the back - be sure to check it out as this area is a bit less crowded and more peaceful to stroll around in. I have visited the Wong Tai... More

A beautiful temple in Kowloon, only a few meters from the Wong Tai Sin subway station. I've been to HK many times but this is the first time I visited this temple, and I was much surprised. It is beautifully decorated. They have life-sized sculptures of the 12 Chinese zodiac animals. They have a nice garden with a lake and... More
