Hung Shing Temple
Time Out says
120-year-old temple and a declared monument in Hong Kong
Situated on the outlying island of Kau Sai Shing – though it’s still technically categorised as Sai Kung – is a 120-year-old temple and a declared monument in Hong Kong. This establishment is dedicated to Hung Shing, the God of the Sea. The delicate structure has suffered through years of typhoons and heavy rains leading to four renovations, the last of which won the Outstanding Project Award in the 2000 UNESCO Asia-Pacific Heritage Awards for Culture Heritage Conservation. Inside the temple you’ll find images of Hung Shing and intricate murals depicting dragons.
