Extremely popular among Feng Shui enthusiasts, this temple’s real claim to fame lies in its reputation as wishing-well. People come from all over to have their fortunes told here, or to thank the temple for wishes that came true. They light worship sticks, kneel before the main altar, make a wish, and shake a bamboo cylinder containing fortune sticks until one falls out.
The stick is exchanged for a piece of paper bearing the same number. This is also one of the only temples that offers facilities for wedding ceremonies in Hong Kong. Definitely check out the Good Wish Gardens behind the main temple. Which is filled with colorful pavilions, zigzag bridges, waterfalls and carp ponds.

A lovely place for a cultural visit, the temples architecture is well kept and it truly is a place where religions coexist with each other. Literally on the doorstep of the MTR station Wong Tai Sin (just look for the signage for which exit). Signage is predominantly in English and Chinese but some are Chinese only. Has a nice attached smaller gardens for some contemplation, currently undergoing some renovation for the Dragon area of the gardens though. The Nan Lian gardens is a stones throw away at Diamond Hill so this makes a good day out in combination. Would recommend!
Good and peaceful environment with great architectual design. The Garden opposite is worth a visit.
nice temple.. i love it.. worth to go. next to it, is a mall
One if the busiest place in HK. Lots of tourist there. Can be reach by Subway.
A devout ensemble of halls, shrines, pavilions, and altars, this busy temple is a destination for all walks of Hong Kong society, from pensioners and business people to parents and young professionals. Some come to pray, others to divine the future with chim - numbered bamboo "fortune sticks" that are shaken out of a box on to the ground (they are available free from the right of the main temple). Take the noted numbers to an attendant fortune teller to be read.
