Che Kung Temple, Hong Kong

(4/5 based on 150+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • 新年的車公廟十分熱鬧, 除了本地人, 也有不少旅客前來行個大運。除了拜神, 還可轉一轉風車, 增添運氣。這亦是個歷史愛好者必到的景點。  more »

  • Remember to check out the original temple that is located behind the main building. Shame they drew fake brick lines when they restored it.
  • A large temple dedicated to Che Kung, who was believed to suppress disease. On less busy days, the temple is a great place to visit to take in the architecture.
  • This is a lovely temple with beautiful architecture and is also beautifully decorated. The temple is an easy walk from the MTR.
  • A beautiful temple a shirt walk away from the Hong Kong Heritage Museum.
  • The temple is nice but there ate better ones
