Tai Wong Yeh Temple (Kwun Tong) - Spirit of an Army General

This temple was originally located in a place in the foot of a mountain.
However, due to the urban development, this temple was moved to the current location.

The legendary story about this temple can be dated back to the late Song Dynasty.
It is said that some local residents saw a spirit of a famous army general of Tang Dynasty.
They are very respectful to this army general.
So, they built this temple for him.

This temple is called "Tai Wong Yeh Temple".
The temple is decorated solemnly.
In the exterior walls of the temple, there are two special murals.
The left one is called "Green Dragon", while the right one is called "White Tiger".

To get there, you can take the MTR to the Kwun Tong MTR Station and leave at Exit D1.
Then, walk along Kwun Tong Road to Tsui Ping Road.
Afterwards, walk along Tsui Ping Road to Tsui Ping North Estate.
The temple is located near Tsui Tsz House in Tsui Ping North Estate.
