Pak Tai temple

22 01 2017


The Pak Tai temple, tucked away at the back of Wanchai, is probably Hong Kong’s prettiest temple. The building, dating from the 1860s, stands in a grove of huge banyan trees, under the shadows of skyscrapers and the looming slopes of the Peak, and houses a shrine to the deity known as “The Supreme Emperor of the Dark Heaven”, represented by a Ming dynasty four hundred year old bronze statue.
