Che Kung Temple, Hong Kong

4.0
Che Kung Temple was built in the early 12th century in honour of Che Kung, a military commander of the Southern Song dynasty, whose wartime achievements eventually led him to being revered as a god. Primarily functioning to accommodate the increasing number of worshippers for the Che Kung festival, the temple also attracts tourists with a giant statue of Che Kung himself, as well as a huge drum, a bell, and a fan-bladed wheel of fortune, said to bring good luck if spun three times. Our Hong Kong planning site makes visiting Che Kung Temple and other Hong Kong attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • Go to the temple once a year because the new year will want to visit. During the new year, people are very many, so there are crowd control. The temple will basically have a line of worship, if more people, along the crowd can complete the program. The car is not big, most people will turn the wind, the wind is expected to rain, peace.

  • Visited this temple during Chinese New Year and although it was crowded the atmosphere was great and the temple statues, murals and architecture were really amazing. So long as you can handle overpowering incense (common in all temples) it's is definitely worth visiting any time of the year.
  • Worth visiting and understanding the history. I found little else to do in the area So a journey just for this temple. But must be ok, I've been there twice.
  • A must visit while in Hong Kong. The Che Kung statue is awe inspiring. Behind the statue is another temple that is closed to the public, that was the original Che Kung temple. If you plan to spin the pin wheel to change you luck, please remember to light three incense sticks. Also guys spin the pin wheel with your left and ladies with the right hand. Please only spin the pin wheel clockwise.
  • It's a bit out of the way but worth if you're interested in seeing the culture. Che Kung statue is huge and impressive. Don't forget to light up 3 incenses.
  • I took the train from Tung Chung Station, which is taking me ard an hour to the temple. When you reach Tai wan station, looking for exit B , walk along the way And cross the tunnel. The temple will in front of you. 3-5 mins walk. You have to enter the temple in the front. Make sure which side is the front one. If you have your own pendant, you can bring it. No need to buy pendant there. The staffs there are really nice and they can speak Thai. Btw easy to go there and they have instruction provided. Good luck
