Pak Tai Temple on Cheung Chau

Pak Tai Temple at Cheung Chau

This temple was erected on Cheung Chau about 200 years ago to honour Pak Tai, the Taoist god of the sea, who is also known as the Supreme Emperor of the Northern Heaven or the Mysterious Heaven.

This cultural gem contains gold-plated woodcraft dating from the Qing Dynasty (1644–1911) and a Song Dynasty (960–1279) iron sword. The sculpted dragons adorning the roof are classic Chinese architectural features.

This temple is also the centre of festivities during the quirky and wildly popular Bun Festival, which falls on the eighth day of the fourth month in the lunar calendar.
