The Wong Tai Sin Temple (Chinese: 黄大仙 祠) is a picturesque Taoist temple amidst huge apartment buildings in Kowloon, Hong Kong.
It is dedicated to the Taoist monk Won Tai Sin. Also described as immortal Wong, the monk was able to look into the future and had healing powers.
The foundation stone for the temple was laid in the early 20th Century by Leung Renyan, a small shopkeeper for medical needs.
Today it is one of the most visited temples in Hong Kong. We were impressed how few the people feel bothered by the attending crowds, in their prayers and meditation.
The temple complex includes the beautiful Good Wish Garden.
The temple is easily accessible by the subway. It is just 200 meters from the Wong Tai Sin MTR Station and opens daily from 7:00 – 17:00 clock.
