Exploring Hong Kong Island South - Wong Chuk Hang

Tai Wong Ye Temple in Wong Chuk Hang, Hong Kong Island South. From this afternoon's walkabout in the neighborhood. The temple was founded in 1901 when some fishermen found a statue of Tai Wong Ye in a canal, so they built the temple on the spot.  This neighborhood is immediately adjacent to our part of the Typhoon Shelter is known as Wong Chuk Hang.  A former industrialized area with old factory buildings and warehouses, many of them are now converted to art galleries and artist spaces.  With the arrival of its new MTR subway station, there is now an increasing number of high rise luxury condo and office towers as well.
