  • Wonderful religious temple in the middle of the hustle and bustle. PLEASE show your respect and do NOT enter the temple in inappropriate clothing - a scarf always comes in handy ladies. 
  • Seemed overrated. Sure, it was nice enough and the very smoky air is atmospheric, but it's also a pretty small and unassuming sight. 
  • This is a small temple in the central HK (island) but definitely worth a visit. It does give you a flavour of the HK history & culture.

  • Under construction!. Looks like they are making repairs to the roof so there is scaffolding everywhere. I've been several times and in past years and loved it vowing to come back to take pictures with my good camera of the wonderful red lanterns and coiled incense that crowds the ceiling of this picturesque little temple but when I visited yesterday it was covered with so much scaffolding and boards it was almost impossible to get a picture. If you are in the area you can check it out but not worth the trip until the construction is done.
  • Seems like construction is done so you should be able to get some good pictures. Nice temple with plenty to see
  • This is a really unique temple. Like most Chinese temples, it is the embodiment of many schools of religious thought all in one. What is special about this temple are the neat pyramidal coil incense. Though, beware, the sheer amount of incense and candles burned in the small space is enough to suffocate you, and while most incense are generally okay, it could be scary to think what you're really breathing in in a cloudy area like this. Besides that, the fortune telling aspect is pretty neat, though you can do that at any other temple. Whether or not the coils are unique to this temple, they aren't, but the numbers are a neat draw. You can also see what a chinese style mausoleum looks like.
  • In and amongst the tall apartment blocks of the midlevels. Pretty small and filled with incense. Worth a visit.
  • Much smaller and quieter place of worship compared to Wong Tai Sin. I do remember a steep uphill to reach this area. Strong incense aroma fill the interior. Good for a good 15min visit.
