This place was rather busy with people praying when I came so I did not have as much of a look as I would have liked but it is small and pretty as well as interesting and is in direct contrast to the bustling streets of Wan Chai around you.

Hong Kong is full of contrasts and this temple nestled between the high rises is an illustration of that. There are two small rooms inside with the typical incense smell. Worth taking a look.

It is said that your wish will become true if you pray sincerely here. It is believed that the fortune telling here is accurate. Do come and see.

Hung Shing Temple honours the god of the same name. He was a government official from the Tang Dynasty and, as a god, protects against natural disasters. This is quite a typical little HK temple. It is nice, but not worth a special trip. Chances are that you will be in the area at some point during your stay in... More

We saw this temple on the map and were walking along Queen's Road East and came across this lovely little temple and were surprised by the smallness of the temple. It was well kept and you could just go in and look around. I didn't go up stairs unfortunately. Maybe next time

Nice temple tucked in a busy street. Do get inside. Huge tree at the back of the temple. Go upstairs for more rooms including the very nice office for the person in charge.
