Wong Tai Sin Temple

A very traditional Chinese temple. The place to be during Chinese New Year to make your offerings for a prosperous new year.

If you haven't been to Chinese temples before, this can serve as an introduction to Chinese temples as it is on the subway line and easily accessible. There are nice zodiac statues outside and a decent garden and some rather gaudy decorations. This temple is also somewhat commercialized and may not be for those temple visiting veterans.

Excellent dive into Chinese culture. All the major religions are represented here. The temple is well preserved and an important part of Hong Kong's history.

MTR gets you straight to it, get off at Wong Tai Sin exit B2. The temple complex is quite big, it is quite hectic in the main hall area but you are still able to get around and see all the sights. The pillars, roof and lattice work are bright and delicately finished. The garden is extensive and the pools... More

Another chinese temple with a lot of movement; the interesting thing is a real representation of today world: a spot with a milenial religious culture aside of a US style mall and luxury apartment buildings.

When walk out of the Wong Tai Sin Metro, there will be people approaching to sell you joss sticks n temple papers for praying use. Is alright to buy the joss sticks but DO NOT buy the papers cos there are no place for you to burn it. We asked the temple in-charge n the security guard, they just push... More

Next door to MTR station and easily accessible. The Buddhist faithful kneeling, presenting their offerings to Buddha was inspiring. The temple is a bit grittier than others in HK since it's in the middle of the city, but the architecture, the palpable spirituality and the gardens, make this temple worth visiting.

So many tourist that I felt it imposing to be there since there were no room for all the people who actually came there to pray or whatever they are doing. Fun to see the animal statues and a lovely quiet garden behind the temple.

Different to almost all other temples we've visited in Asia since it sits against a backdrop of skyscrapers and has a modern shopping mall as next-door neighbour. This makes it interesting in a way. It was also clean and light and not extremely crowded or covered in a cloud of incense. We could therefore walk around and see everything we... More
