Peaceful Temple

Gorgeous and unpretentious this little Temple is a gem not far from the Wan Chai MTR (Queens Rd Exit). No entry fee or donation required, it's a lovely temple to visit.

This was actually on our road which was a bonus. It's an amazing building with a great incense smell. It's a must visit. It's at the end of stone nullah lane past the blue house

If you want to find a small and peaceful temple in the middle of Hong Kong. Not so far away from Wanchai MTR or bus stop. This temple is same road with the blue house.

Serene tranquility in the middle of the organized(?) chaos that is Hong Kong. The temple is in the middle of what seems to be Automotive Repair Central, but turn the corner, walk up the steps, and relax. Oh, be sure to check out the priest performing SMS'd in prayers...

Encouraged by our guide book we took the MTR to Wan Chai and walked south to the temple that is located at the end of a small side road. This temple was built over 150 years ago by local residents and is a riot of colour and was busy when we visited. Everybody were pleasant and allowed us to go... More

The temple itself forms an important part of the early settlers. A unique architectural style. Another way to learn history.

I'm sad this temple is so far down on the list of things to do in HK! I thought it was beautiful and very peaceful. Tucked away in the Wan Chai area. Perhaps there aren't so many reasons to visit this area compared to others in HK? I enjoyed walking around the area because it was a chance to see... More

The Pak Tai Temple is a Chinese Taoist style temple found in Wan Chai a few minutes walk from Queen's Road East. Built in 1863, this is one of two Grade I historical temples in the area, along with the Hung Shing Temple, and it makes a nice place to visit if spending time in the area. Dedicated to Pak... More

Wonderful little find tucked away from the craziness of the city. We happened upon this temple by pure accident, and I am very glad we did. It is quite big compared to most other temples we found, but also rather lovely.
