Beautiful Buddhist temple right in the heart of Central Hong Kong. Unobtrusive from the outside, but inside is a fragrant & ornate display of statues, carvings, offerings, worshippers, tourists, and (most notably) incense in all shapes & forms. Lovely coils dangle from the ceiling, ensuring smoke floods every part of the temple. The only downside was that, as an asthmatic, I couldn't stay too long before the smoke got to my lungs. I'd still go back in a heartbeat!
This is one of the most ancient temples in Hong Kong. Both of the interior and exterior are kept in good shape. The temple has installed the state of the art furnace to burn down the offerings and incenses, while they try to maintain the air quality within acceptable level. It would be worthwhile to try the divination(fortune telling) if you have trouble in mind and puzzling how to get through. It is located on the right side of the temple.
