Che Kung Temple, Hong Kong
(4/5 based on 130+ 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.

  • 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.
