  • On went out to Hollywood Road, ate breakfast at the ring and then up the stairs to the temple. Narrow frontage and look up behind built high-rise apartment, looks that buried in the building. Unexpectedly deep inside the temple, indeed Hong Kong S.A.R. is one of the temples. Early in the morning, and encouraged pilgrims and raise the incense in the free. Also, explain in halting Japan visitors. It is nice to walk in the morning to visit the temple.

  • Interesting yet solemn Taoist temple that is still in use as a place of worship. Incensed smoke fills the building, which is lavishly decorated. Photos are permitted but given the nature of the temple, you may feel more respectful by refraining, and instead engaging in the experience with your own thoughts and prayers.
  • The smoke filled temple welcomes picture (no flash photography) taking tourists. Giant spiral incense sticks fill the interior with scented smoke. Make sure to stay quiet, inconspicuous and away from patrons. The interior is impressive and although there's no entry fee they welcome donations.
  • Great temple for a worship of god, beggibg for the wise and smart children. The temple filled with incense smoke. Very beautiful and peaceful inside.
  • Very peaceful place, solemn place with welcoming congregation. It was nice to take a step back and observe the worshippers, marvel at the burning beehive-like incense sticks up above and take it all in. Beautiful architecture inside, worth a visit.
  • A small temple that is in the middle of a busy section of town. It is still in use today and tourists are welcome. The inside is decorated with beautiful lanterns.
