Found in the middle of a number of commercial and residential buildings, the finely crafted Hung Shing Temple stands out though not as enormous as its neighbouring shrines in the area of Hong Kong. Therefore when staying at Dorsett Mongkok Hotel Hong Kong which serves as one of the Mongkok hotels Hong Kong has to offer, consider travelling to the temple with family and friends.
Dedicated to Hung Shing, the temple is believed to have been built in 1847 with the aid of rock boulders. This one hall temple features granite columns, ceramic decorations on the roof and numerous other interesting elements. The festival held at the temple is held on the first and fifteenth day of every lunar month on the birthday of the Goddess of Mercy, Kwun Yum. In 1987, the temple was included as a Grade 1 historic building and is currently part of the Wan Chai Heritage Trail.
