Historic Site Religious Site
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.

  • A bit like the Wong Tai Sin, this temple is not a lot of tourists, but holiday time, there will be a lot of people to worship. This temple is very little, if want to see the magnificent building is no...  more »
  • ...take 20 minutes to wander round but not worth making the visit for on its own. The large statue of Che Kung in the main hall is pretty impressive, as are those in the courtyard but it's nothing spe...  more »
  • It's an interesting site and easy to get to either by MTR (station is 3-5 minutes walk away) or bus (no. 170 seems best). It is a good way to be introduced to temples and how they are used in an every...  more »

  • This was a very nice temple. Nothing massive and spectacular, and yet there was a very nice atmosphere here. It's definitely worth a visit. I'm giving it 5 stars because I had a great time. Not very easy to reach, a bit distant from Hong Kong (1 hour by train: you'll need to change three different mtr lines and get ready cose it will be very crowded wherever you go, but hey this is Hong Kong). If you're OK with spending more money, go there by taxi and come back by train (easier to find a taxi in Hong Kong than outside the temple). We went there by train and it was so packed you have no idea. But still, worth it to go there.
  • A must-go sightseeing in Hong Kong for whom may like temple, a clean toilet, easy to access, parking outside the temple, feature souvenirs…
  • Nice place to worship. Easy access by MTR or city bus.
  • One great local temple. Stay away from the cny thought, if you don't want to be squished by the intensive crowd.
  • The new temple look good, but the real temple actually restricted to public.
