Located on Steeles Avenue, this temple is dedicated to Wong Dai Sin, a Taoist Immortal who is particularly well-loved in Hong Kong. Although he was a simple shepherd boy, he displayed great virtue and was able to cultivate immortality by practising the Taoist arts. This architecturally-innovative, Governor-General’s Medal-winning building, which opened in 2015, has quickly become an important landmark and gathering place for people who wish to participate in the services that regularly take place here. This temple also includes a Memorial Hall. Memorial plaques are available to anyone who wishes to commemorate a loved one.
About Wong Dai Sin
Wong Dai Sin is a Taoist immortal who is particularly well known and venerated in Hong Kong as well as communities in Guangdong and Zhejiang provinces. According to his story, although he was a simple shepherd boy, he displayed great virtue and was able to cultivate immortality by practising the Taoist arts on Mount Chisong (“Red Pine”) in Zhejiang. Afterward, he became known for “helping all and promoting goodness.”With this temple, we hope to help spread his spirit of sincerity, perseverance and compassion and provide a place for all who wish to benefit from the practice of Taoism.
