Chun Kwan Temple - Less Famous But Very Popular

This temple was originally built about 100 years ago.
Its original location was located near a waterfront.
Due to urban development, in about 1980s, it was relocated to the present location.

According to an ancient legend, the deity of this temple was only a commoner in the Southern Song Dynasty.
He aided the local government at that time in fighting pirates along the coast of Guangdong.
After his death, in order to commemorate his heroic act, the reigning emperor awarded him the posthumous title of "Chun Kwan".

Since then, people started to worship him as a god and build a temple for him.
This temple is also his only temple.
Although this deity is less popular than other famous deities, his birthday festival (15th day of the 3rd lunar month) is equally vibrant and lively.

His birthday festival always lasts for more than a few days.
It is also one of the largest scale celebrations within the district.
Celebration activities, such as lion and dragon Dances as well as Cantonese opera performances, can be seen during the festival.
While watching the performances, visitors can also try out some of the local snacks sold in street side stalls.

To get there, you can take the MTR to the Tsing Yi MTR Station and leave at Exit A1.
Then, take bus No.249M at Tsing Yi Station Public Transport Interchange and get off at Tsing Yi Police Station Bus Stop.
You will see the temple near the footbridge.
