Located in Tsuen Wan District (New Territories of Hong Kong) is this fascinating Taoist temple. The complex itself is sprawling and features numerous architecturally stunning buildings. I was fortunate to meet a woman who works at the institute who spent a good twenty minutes showing...More

This is not on the typical destination maps, or things to do in Hong Kong, probably because it is a little off the beaten path. But it is worth the effort. Amazing temple complex and monastery, with beautiful architecture, artwork, landscaping. Even an old car...More

This is a large complex with a central courtyard and places to buy offerings. From the top of the stairs, there is fantastic view of Tsuen Wan.

Other than the vague resemblance to Beijing's Temple of Heaven, there's not much to see. The Western Monastery next door is more interesting.
