Wong Tai Sin Temple is one of the most frequently celebrated Taoist ancestral temples in Hong Kong. Its former name was Rosy Garden which was built in 1921. It commemorates the famous monk of yore Wong Tai Sin (also known as Huang Chu-ping), who was born around AD 328 and became a deity at Heng Shan (Red Pine Hill) in his later life. And also Wong Tai Sin was a Taoist disciple and merchant who took delight in helping others and used to render aid to poor people to solve difficulties, thus a living deity for them. He was ready to help for every asking. Therefore people built this temple by the name of "Wong Tai Sin Temple" in his memory after his death. The ornate temple with its red pillars, gold ceilings and decorative latticework is usually full of people burning incense and making floral offerings. The temple also has a lovely adjacent park, called the 'Good Wish Gardens': a peaceful green spot with waterfalls tumbling over rocks…
