having not been to a temple for ages, i seized the opportunity to come here and was not wrong in doing so. extremely easy to get to by MTR - Wong Tai Sin station, what coincidence! extremely busy and good reason for so, i had a good wandered round to absorb in the architectural marvel of this place and even spotted a man made waterfall set against the backdrop of high rise residential apartments, nearby there are two large shopping complexes, no surprise there! would definitely visit again if back in HK

It is a must to visit when you visit HK and you don't need to be Buddhist to go there. The temple was renovated fully last year and it is stunning and extremely popular for worshippers. Easy to get to by the MTR and you can try to get blessing or get your palm and fortune read. It is a very sacred place. There are many shrines in the temple and there is a beautiful landscaped garden at the back, well hidden and it is very tranquil. Make a donation at a shrine of your choice although the amount is discretionary. you'll love it there.

The temple nestled amongst the residential skyscrapers is always bustling with people and filled with those who are wanting to have their fortune told, or just seeking blessings, and good fortune. It is packed with information and snippets of confucian and taoist culture and facts, which makes it a must visit for those interested in soaking in some chinese culture.

Its great for a visit if you are a buddhist, but its great for tourist to know bout the chinese cultures too. The temple lead the first timers and regulars alike letting us know how many josstick that can be brought to the temple and very helpful to tourist too. Its usually pack on weekends, so i recommend weekday.

As you getting off the subway and coming out the station, you can smell the strong fragrance of incense, it is one of the oldest temples and most popular temple among the locals. Listen carefully to the broadcast instruction on how many incense to offer in each sub-temples. It is crowded with tourists as well.
