Hoi Wong Temple (Street Temple)

1 save

Recommendation by Lemi

Occupying only one square meter on Nam Ning Street sits a temple that has been a humble yet immovable presence on the island since time immemorial. Plants and offerings decorate the altar as devout locals take a moment from their busy day to pay their respects to Hoi Wong (海王), King of the Sea. Legend has it that when they attempted to relocate the temple, a restaurant across it caught fire immediately. The residents took this as a bad omen and attributed this incident to the angry water god; thus, sealing it in its place.
