Directions to Che Kung Temple

The Chinese relationship with luck and good fortune is what they are known for throughout the world. One such tradition is the Che Kung Festival, which is held on the third day of the Chinese New Year at the Che Kung Temple, in commemoration of Che Kung, a legendary General from three hundred years ago during the late Ming dynasty. Legend has it, he did not only save the people from the rebellions of the time, but it is also said that he had been the savior of the people from the epidemic that engulfed the people from Sha Tin Disctrict.

Because of his reverence from society, a temple was erected in his honor, and people go there to spin the copper windmill that's inside it to ensure a year's worth of good luck. So famous is the Che Kung Festival that it is sojourned at by ever-increasing flocks of tourists and locals alike.

The Sha Tin district is blossoming as a hotspot for tourists who want to visit and pay homage to its various number of temples. Other recreational activities around the area include horse racing and mountain trails, as well as a visit to the famed Hong Kong Heritage Museum. The most opportune time to take a visit to the temple is, of course, the Chinese New Year. Or more specifically, on the day of the Che Kung Festival itself which falls on the third day of the Chinese New Year, and expect to find droves of worshippers each wanting their blessing of good luck for the year.
