Wong Tai Sin Temple

contrary to popular beliefs that Wong Tai Sin temple is buddhist, it is actually in honour of a priest of Taoist religion from Guandong Province in Southern China.  Nevertheless, this temple is a popular site where you will find people coming to pray and make offers.  In particular, during special holidays, especially Chinese New Year, the temple is filled with worshippers offering incense and money praying of a wonderful year ahead.
