Che Kung Temple

This imposing temple is dedicated to Che Kung, a Southern Song dynasty (1127–1279) military commander who was particularly skilled in putting down uprisings in the 13th century. He escorted the last Song emperors to Hong Kong as they fled Mongolian invaders. People in Sha Tin dedicated a temple to him about 300 years ago in order to stop the spread of a local epidemic; local lore has it that the disease vanished the day the temple was completed. Visitors today will encounter a giant statue of Che Kung and a wheel of fortune that is said to bring good luck when spun three times.
