The Che Kung Temple at Ho Chung in Sai Kung is believed to be over 400 years old and, while a bit off the beaten track, is well worth a visit. It was built by the Ho Chung community and served the half-dozen villages in the Ho Chung valley. Its location, with its Fung Shui woods behind it, the river immediately in front, and its well-preserved traditional design and architecture, make it one of the most auspicious traditional buildings in the New Territories. The narrow roadway in front of the temple, along the river bank, used to be the main route from Sai Kung market to Kowloon. It passed through the valley and then steeply up the hillside to Pik Uk and over the pass to Kowloon City. The area around the temple used to be entirely rural, but over the years, the area has undergone industrial and residential development.
