Popular for its claim to make wishes come true, Wong Tai Sin Temple (Sik Sik Yuen Temple) hosts three religions including Taoism, Buddhism, and Confucianism. Its traditional Chinese-style architecture features red pillars and golden roofs intricately decorated with carvings, latticework, and friezes. Participate in an old custom by praying, which involves lighting incense sticks, kneeling before the main altar, and making a wish. When you are finished, look for cylindrical containers holding numbered sticks. Shake the container until a stick falls out, and find your fortune paper corresponding to the number.

  • Take the MTR to the Wong tai sin station. there is a shopping mall beside the temple. I cant enter since the guard said close at 5pm. So better went to the temple before 5pm. 
  • One of the more beautiful temples with a huge water garden and stream fed by an artificial but pretty impressive waterfall (may not be on during the weekdays). DIRECTIONS: Take the metro to next stati...  read more »
  • 過年陪著媽媽來這邊求籤 她說這邊很靈驗 也讓我來這裡陪著她一起求籤 過年就是人多 一走進去就見到12生肖,表情很生動 接著是廟前求籤處 寺廟外有一個全部都是解籤算命處 可以直接拿籤離開也可以找人幫你解籤 靈或是不靈就看個人想法囉! 黃大仙~~我覺得是值得來的地方 
  • An expansive, magnificent temple complex! Lots of temples and memorials to check out. There are also actual prayer rituals taking place while tourists flood other parts of the complex. I suggest that you do a bit of research and download a map before visiting the place for a much better appreciation. Always remember to treat the place with utmost respect so wearing appropriate clothing would be great. There is a mall right beside the complex.
  • One of the most iconic Chinese worship place in Hong Kong, best for worship, photo and feel and learn the culture.
  • I love the statue of a girl, a boy and somewhat a priest where local people pray and tie red string to the rope connected to the 3 statues. I asked someone why are people praying in front of the statues and what is it all about. A girl explained that it is about the priest introducing the 2 couple represented by the rope and people pray for them to meet their partners... something like that but it's really interesting.
  • Nice organized temple. Can be very busy on weekends and holidays.
  • A traditional place in Hong Kong. The transportation is easy, 1 min walk from MTR station. Every beginning of Chinese New Year, people will queue to get the first place of worshipping God, symboling good start of the year!
