  • An experienced master is there to personally guide me do the worship (拜太歲) properly, and prays for me. Not many temples can provide such arrangement as it requires qualification, and experience to do that, the worship is also a time consuming process. I felt so confident to be able to make the proper and best worship to God. I saw a certificate hanging on the wall near the entrance, showing the qualification of the master's proficiency.
  • A great little temple to soak up the Chinese temple culture not far from downtown Tsim Sha Tsui. You can enter from Nathan Road or from the courtyard along Shanghai Street. No one will bother you so take your time to appreciate the place. Sit at the big courtyard under the banyan tree, relax and do some people watching. If you are there in the late afternoon, the stalls around Temple Street Market may start their business so you can do some shopping too.
  • The temple which give the name of the Temple Street. A very rare large temple compound in the urban city with a large plazza at the front
  • Very interesting place.
  • The very busy street market has an authentic atmosphere.
