Wong Tai Sin Temple is a well known shrine and major tourist attraction in Hong Kong. It is dedicated to Wong Tai Sin, or the Great Immortal Wong. The 18,000-m²Taoist temple is famed for the many prayers answered: “What you request is what you get” (有求必應) via a practice called kau cim. The temple is located on the southern side of Lion Rock in the north of Kowloon.
