Lin Fa Kung - Goddess of Mercy

This temple was originally built in 1846.
It is a small temple, but it is decorated beautifully.
Especially the lighting and the red color combination inside the temple, it is particularly impressive.

In this temple, there is also a fresco of dragons on the ceiling.
The fresco is related to the annual fire dragon dance show that takes place in the nearby area.
During Mid Autumn Festival, eye dotting of the fire dragon is carried out in this temple before the dragon dance begins.

Besides, it is said that the Goddess of Mercy Kwun Yum has appeared in this temple several times.
Kwun Yum is kind and merciful and is willing to hear the pleas of worshippers.

During the Kwun Yum Treasury Opening Festival (26th day of the 1st lunar month), many worshippers will come to this temple to borrow prosperity from Kwun Yum.
They seek blessings from Kwun Yum, and also hope that their income can increase in the upcoming year.

This temple is called "Kwun Yum Temple", also known as "Lin Fa Kung", which means "Palace of Lotus Flower".
It is mainly dedicated to the Goddess of Mercy Kwun Yum.
It is well worth your time if you are exploring the Chinese culture.

To reach the temple, leave the Tin Hau MTR Station via Exit B.
Then, walk along Tung Lo Wan Road to Lin Fa Kung Street West for about 8 minutes.
