Covering an area of 18,000 sq, Wong Tai Sin Temple is the biggest Daoist temple in Hong Kong, embedded in the southern side of Lion Rock in the north of Kowloon. Built in 1921, it is dedicated to the immortal Wong Tai Sin (also known as Huang Chuping) and famed for its fortune-telling.

Preaching three traditional religions – Daoism, Buddhism and Confucianism, the temple was built in traditional Chinese architectural style – majestic red pillars, a splendid golden roof adorned with blue friezes with yellow latticework, and glorious multi-colored carvings.
