This is a small temple in Kowloon City. Named after a prominent general in late-Song dynasty, Hau Wong Temple is a historic institution that reflects Hong Kong's traditional religion. The place itself is pretty small.

The Hau Wong Temple is located on Junction Road just north of the Kowloon Walled City Park. The temple was built in 1730 and is a Grade 1 historical building in HK. It is dedicated to the Chinese General Hau Wong. Opening hours are 8am to 5pm.

This is a nice temple compound with several halls and outdoor garden area. You'll find some fine reliefs and murals with figurines on the outside walls, around the entrance and within Hau Wong Temple. You'll also see expected hanging red lanterns and stone lions guarding the entrance.

Interior halls feature decorative shrines with deity figures, iron incense pots and numerous items left by worshippers. There is a large image of Hau Wong painted on the entrance door to the main hall.

In the end, It is small but interesting temple to include with visits to the Kowloon Walled City Park. You can conveniently explore the Hau Won Temple grounds in 10-15 minutes.

We stopped here on our way from the train station to the Kowloon Walled City Park.
It is small, quiet and interesting. Worth a visit if you are in this area.

This is a small, well-cared-for 18th century temple probably built to commemorate a Chinese general, known as Hau Wong.

You can visit it easily if you exit the Kowloon Walled City Park via the North-west gate on Tung Tau Tsuen Road, and cross the street, or if taking the MTR, by exiting the station and turning left do Junction Road.

The temple is up a flight of not-very-steep stairs. We spent perhaps 15-20 minutes examining the altar, the calligraphy, and the wall reliefs. The stone renditions of "goose" and "crane" were supposedly originally done in a single brush stroke.

I doubt we would have made this a "destination" temple, but it was a nice "add-on" after seeing the park.

Hong Kong has over 100 temples for worship. Some of them are tourist attractions. Be it for worship or to marvel at the architecture and relics, the temples offer a few minutes of solitude. I make it a point to visit the Hau Wong Temple on Junction Road, Lokfu to light incense then bang the gong to finish the visit.
