Hong Kong is full of contrasts and this temple nestled between the high rises is an illustration of that. There are two small rooms inside with the typical incense smell. Worth taking a look.

Nice temple tucked in a busy street. Do get inside. Huge tree at the back of the temple. Go upstairs for more rooms including the very nice office for the person in charge.

area widely known as Central is the major financial
hub and entertainment district, which truly lives up
to the saying, “work hard, play hard.” Bars stay open
late into the night and there just happens to be a
