It's easy to get to this oddly named temple complex from Kowloon on the MTR (Tsuen Wan station), then grab a taxi for a $6 ride to the "institute." Finding a return taxi is also easy because the temple is busy and taxis frequently drop...More

A great place to visit. It is interesting to see Confucian, Taoist and Buddhist cultures in the same centre. There are some very photogenic temples and it is a peaceful place to visit. A nice change from the excitement of Honk Kong.
