Tag Archives: Wong Tai Sin Temple

Continuing the journey in Hong Kong

26 Oct


Next visit: Wong Tai Sin temple, with its foundation in Taoism. Wong Tai Sin is known for his abilities to tell the future and many visit this site to get their palms read and fortunes told. An organisation, the Sik Sik Yuen, was founded to undertake charitable work involving education, clinics and more.

During the Chinese New Year season, the temple is filled to its brim with worshipers visiting to pray for an auspicious year ahead.

Behind the area of worship sits a peaceful garden and pavillion to rest at.

The Wong Tai Sin Temple is convenient to visit by train (there’s a stop by the name of the temple) and a shopping complex right next to the train station too!
