  • The temple is really small, there are only a few locals burning incenses inside, there were no tourists at all. You should go there only if you're close, it's not that good.  more »

  • 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. UPDATE: AS OF APRIL 2017 THE RENOVATIONS ARE COMPLETE AND THE TEMPLE IS WONDERFUL!
  • Must visit. Unique temple in Hong Kong. Local would come to pray for their studies and careers. Famous among Thais and other nationalities
  • Worth visiting if you enjoy temples. Smaller than what I expected. There's a small shop selling temple souvenirs on the right.
  • If you are sensitive to smoke from incense, try to avoid. Otherwise worth a visit when in the area.
  • It's seen better days. And people are there praying while tourists are being turds. Just be quiet and respectful.
