Aside from the impressive skyline of Victoria Harbour, mouth-watering street food courts in Mong Kok and luxurious shopping malls in Tsim Sha Tsui, traditional Chinese structures pepper Hong Kong at every turn. Here, we focus on the mysterious temples of the city and which ones every traveller should seek out.
Dating back more than 200 years, this temple honours the Pak Tai, the Supreme Emperor of the Northern Heaven, and is graded a first-class historic building. Two antique gems are hidden in the temple, including a gold-plated woodcraft from the Qing Dynasty and an iron sword from the Song. The square outside the temple is populated by crowds during the Cheung Chau Bun Festival every year, where the exciting bun scrambling competition takes place.
