Sik Sik Yuen Wong Tai Sin Temple - Review
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. The Tai Sui Yuenchen Hall charges HK$ 50 for the elderly or HK$ 100 for adults per visit.

Sik Sik Yuen Wong Tai Sin Temple, Hong Kong Reviews
One of the oldest temples in hongkong. You can get into the metro and get down at the Wong tai sin station. The temple is located right outside the station. You will find lot of hawkers who try to sell the incense sticks meant for the prayers in this temple. However I would suggest you reach the temple premises and then buy it. It’s much cheaper near the temple. The foreign visitors need to ensure that they do not may more than what you really pay for the same stuff at the temple. It’s a beautiful temple to visit
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.
A slight change to this temple in good order but still just a praying destination for good wishes
Very nice temple with free entry. Fortune telling available if you’re interested (English and Chinese)
Pleasant and serene except for holidays when it gets very, very busy. Picture older people pushing you to make their offerings, which is fair since it is an operating temple and not just a tourist site. Get your fortune read for a novel experience in the nearby complex.
