Ching Chung Koon was originally opened as a rural retreat in 1961 and features pavilions, lotus ponds and bonsai trees. The ground's Taoist temple contains many treasures, including lanterns from Beijing's Imperial Palace. |
Located in the heart of Tuen Mun's crowded residential high-rise blocks, 'Ching Chung' means Evergreen Pine Tree in Chinese while 'Koon' signifies a Taoist temple.
The main building is the Palace of Pure Brightness and dotted around the exquisitely designed grounds are pagodas, pavilions, pai-laus (ornamental archways), quadrangles, towers, Chinese gardens and fish ponds, all complemented by trees, shrubs, flowers and potted plants. There are many splendid bonsai trees, the perfectly shaped miniature trees.
The visual feast doesn't stop here. There are colourful paintings, examples of calligraphy (writing in Chinese characters) and even poetic inscriptions, all executed with taste and flair. If you're feeling hungry, you might also like to enquire about the possibility of ordering an inexpensive vegetarian meal.
During April or May every year, a fantastic bonsai show containing hundreds of artistically shaped bonsai is open to the public.
