The only temple in Hong Kong that offers facilities for Taoist wedding services, the Wong Tai Sin Temple (黄大仙祠) is one of the most famous temples in Hong Kong. Known for its fortune-tellers, visitors flock here year round so that the soothsayers that reside in the temple can inform them as to their future. The temple is located on the southern side of Lion Rock in the north of Kowloon. It is constructed in traditional Chinese style. The temple boasts large, ornate red pillars and a magnificent gold roof. Three memorial archways, which are a very common feature of classic Chinese architecture, can be found on the grounds of the temple. At the complex, you'll also find a Nine-Dragon Wall, similar to the famous one located in Beijing. This is a particularly popular spot to visit during the Chinese New Year and in celebration of the immortal Wong's birthday, which is on the 23rd day of the eighth lunar month.
