Temples Tips (16)

Tian Tan Buddha. Lantau Island

located at Ngong Ping, Lantau Island, in Hong Kong. There are busses that go right there. You can catch a train from anywhere and transfer to bus. Easy as pie.

There are stairs up this, so the disabled may need to see it from below, which is still very large!

There is a temple nearby, a market to buy stuff and some walking paths with nice views.

Traditional Temple among City

The temple of Wong Tai Sin is one of the famous temples in Hong Kong, we go to see Wong Tai Sin when we lost our ways in mind or make wishes especially in Chinese New Year. We believe "He" fulfills your wishes. What you can do to make a wish, it's very easy: Take a incense stick, when prayers just close your eyes and make a wish with devotion, shake the bamboo cylinder and cand take the fortune stick, which falls out. It will carry a number and the stick will be exchanged with a piece of paper with the same number by the priest.
This is one way of knowing your fortune! Believe it or not, why not try it!

China of yore

The area around Yau Ma Tei and Mong Kok is one of the first areas to be developed after the British acquired Kowloon in 1860. One of the most famous street in Yau Ma Tei area is Shanghai Street, which is one of the oldest streets in Hong Kong. Many of the buildings were built long ago and some of the shops have existed for decades. It is a crowded place, with a very Chinese urban feel with open-air markets, temples and lively activity.

If you get out of the Mong Kok metro station, you will land up straight in the courtyard of Wong Tai Sin temple.

Temples

The many and colourful Hongkong temples testify that religion and honoring the memory of the ancestors is still a serious issue for Hongkong Chinese. They are often-visited by the locals, who bring sacrifices, sometimes incense, fresh fruit or flowers, in order to gain good luck. A special custom is the sacrifice of bundles of "hell money" (fake money that is burned as a sacrifice). Hell Money bank notes are a good (and cheap) souvenir, too. One of the biggest and most interesting temples is the Wong Tai Sin (North Kowloon). It even features a score of fortune tellers (one of my fellow travellers was duly impressed by their abilities, so there might be more to it).

St John's Cathedral

Not a temple like the famous Chinese ones but to me a beautifully quiet place is the St John's Cathedral close to the Peak Tram place. The Cathedral opened for divine service on Sunday 11th March 1849 and Hong Kong celebrated its 150th anniversary in 1999. The Cathedral is the second oldest building in Hong Kong!

Passing this church I really got touched by the beauty of the white complex. The Cathedral is worshipped for St John the Baptist. The architectural style is of a Gothic decoration, very plain and unadorned, although the Main East Window shows Jesus on the Cross outside Jerusalem. The North Windows show the story of Jesus calming the storm and, the South Windows show scenes from the life of Jesus. It is worth to visit this peaceful place ...

The Giant Buddha.

You know? They don't call it like this for nothing... It is truly Giant. Iti s the world's tallest and biggest Buddha. Made in Bronze and sitting in his very typical position on a throne made of lotus flower.
Truly amazing, really worth to visit in my opinion.

Classic Temple Example

You can go inside the temple between 8am and 6pm daily. There is a 8ft whale bone which was dedicated to Tin Hau by fishermen over 100 years ago as well as all the giant incense coils you see suspended from the ceiling. The temple is a wonderful insight to Chinese temples and traditions.

Yuen Yuen Institute (Yuen Yuen Hok Yuen)

Another magnificant site with beautiful traditional Chinese architecture. It is actually a collection of temples and monastaries of 3 religions: Confucianism, Taoism and Buddhism. You can also try their vegetarian dishes here.

Should avoid visiting when there is a Chinese festival, as the place will be packed with worshippers.

When you are in HK and you...

When you are in HK and you have a little bit time visit the temple of the 10 000 Buddhas. Not because of the temple, but the sight is very nice, as you see on my photo.
If you look around you will see a contrast. On the one hand there are sky scrapers everywhere and on the other hand the jungle and the green trees are all over the hills!

Go to the temples and Shrines...

Go to the temples and Shrines in Hong Kong. A favorite temple of many locals is The Temple of 10,000 Buddhas in Shatin. You have to climb 500 steps to reach there.
You can also go to Po Lin Buddhist Monastery in Lantau Island. It is a very big temple.
