The Che Kung Temple, also called ‘Che Kung Miu’, is a temple located in the Tai Wai area of Sha Tin, Hong Kong. This temple, rather than being dedicated to a spiritual entity, is built in the honour of Che Kung, a military commander of the Southern Song Dynasty. He is valorized for his attempts to suppress the uprisings in Southern China and to save the dynasty from several catastrophes. There are two Che Kung dedicated temples in Hong Kong with the second one being located in Ho Chung.
The interior of Che Kung temple embraces a giant statue of Che Kung along with a huge drum and bells. Another centre of attraction in the temple happens to be a 3 blade fan-shaped wheel of fortune which is believed to bring good luck when spun three times. Local vendors outside the temple provide vegetables and fruits for donations along with incense sticks. While entry to Che Kung temple is free, a small donation is appreciated for it is the only source of income for the temple.
