Shing Wong Temple

Shing Wong Temple

According to traditional Chinese belief, the guardian god who protects and watch over cities is Shing Wong. His responsibility is to manage the ghosts and spirits that haunt the district under his charge, and to maintain peace and order throughout the living world and beyond.

This Shing Wong Temple was built in 1877 and was formerly called the Fook Tak Chi, which refers to a place where people pray for blessings and virtue. After an expansion project by the Chinese Temples Committee in 1974, it was renamed Shing Wong Temple.

The temple’s location near the Shau Kei Wan tram terminus makes it popular with local residents.
