...take 20 minutes to wander round but not worth making the visit for on its own. The large statue of Che Kung in the main hall is pretty impressive, as are those in the courtyard but it's nothing special. See it after the nearby Heritage Museum if you fancy...

With the Lunar New Year Market next to it, it was not bad to have a walk through all the stalls selling similar things, red pinwheels. The old, authentic Temple has been barred from public visitors, after the new, big Temple was newly built as the new extension of the original popular Temple, some thirty years ago. It looks nice,...

There is a beautiful temple with red color as Chinese style. Anyway, the souvenir they sell is so expensive if compare with the quality (material)

Interesting Temple, but not riveting. Glad we saw it...but once is enough. Statues were impressive. Lots of plastic wind chimes on the walls...and lots of incense. Porsche in the garage was a nice touch.

So glad we have decided to detour here before heading to HK Heritage Museum after getting off Che Kung Temple station (on Wu Kai Sha line). The temple is built with red walls surrounding its main temple inside, you can notice it from a far, it has 2 entrances to it. The main temple houses a giant Che Kung statue... More

One of the well known and popular temples. Take the MTR to Tai Wai or Che Kung Temple. Short walking distance to temple. Very crowded near Chinese New Year time.

This Taoist temple is near the Hong Kong Heritage museum. It is a very interesting place to visit and has a peaceful atmosphere. The air was laden with incense when we were there. The temple takes its name after a general of the Song dynasty and there is a very large statue of him inside.

If you have nothing better to do, I guess it's ok to go. It seemed a bit tourist trap-ish and it's not very big, not very well kept and doesn't have a garden or w/e. Nice statue though.

This is one of the most famous temples in Hong Kong. The place also has its own station named after it to make it easier for us and is located in a new part of town due to developments. Great place to pray and change your luck if it is bad
