This is a major Taoist Temple and shrine in Northern Kowloon. I had known it as the Sik Sik Yuen Temple at the Wong Tai Sin MTR station only some 6 stops from Yau Ma Tei interchange on the green line. This is a large attraction and has various altars and worshipping areas. It is a delightful stop with the immediate atmosphere of ancient China with architecture and burning incense. On the day we visited there were plenty of local people which I understand to be the norm celebrating and thanking the immortals. The first entrance gateway is significant and opens to an area where religious offerings are sold. There are plenty of statues, stonework, cauldrons, ponds and colourful designs. This is a special and probably one of the best in inner Hong Kong set amidst the tall residential towers. On leaving the Temple there are plenty of fortune telling stalls to amuse. Since it is a busy attraction I suggest an early morning visit and journey to adjacent Diamond Hill Station to view the Nan Lian Gardens which is another must do stop.
