A review of Che Kung Temple @ Sha Tin, Hong Kong

While visiting Hong Kong, I made a half-day trip to visit Che Kung Temple or also known as Windmill Temple.

After getting off from the MTR and walking for 10 minutes, I then saw the gate of the temple. Similar to other temples in Hong Kong, the main color was red.

Near the entrance gate, there were several spiral incense sticks hanging from the ceiling.

Not so far from the gate, I started seeing the windmills.

A giant statue of Che Kung was located at the main worship hall. People hold three incense sticks and bowed three times to the Che Kung statues to wish for luck. Don’t forget to rotate the fan-bladed wheel of fortune three times and beat the drum in front of the statue. It is believed that it will bring the luck in the coming year.


Before leaving the temple, you could buy the windmills as a souvenir for family or friends. The biggest one was a bit pricey. If you like it, you might choose the smaller one.

Update: December, 2016

Location: Che Kung Temple is located on Che Kung Miu Road, Tai Wai, Sha Tin, New Territories.  The temple is located between MTR Che Kung Temple Station and MTR Tai Wai Station.
