Here's a list of Popular religious places in Hong Kong recommended by our experts:

Hong Kong is home to approximately 600 temples, shrines and monasteries. Hidden among the towering skyscrapers & impressive skyline of Victoria Harbour, mouth-watering street food courts in Mong Kok and luxurious shopping malls in Tsim Sha Tsui, there are many traditional and fascinating Chinese structures, temples and monasteries in Hong Kong at every turn. Travellers should seek out these temples and popular religious places for a truly memorable holiday in Hong Kong. Hong Kong has plenty of cultural gems to uncover. Lantau Island's Tian Tan Buddha and Po Lin Monastery are two of the city's most famous attractions, and with good reason. With the breath-taking backdrop of mountains and the South China Sea, the seated bronze Buddha is 34 m tall, the largest of its kind in the world, on top of a three-tier altar that doubles as an exhibition hall showcasing religious relics as well as a six-tonne bell that rings 108 times a day. Equally impressive architectural feats are located within the monastery itself, including the main shrine and a massive, soon-to-open complex known as the Grand Hall of Ten Thousand Buddhas. Here is a definitive list of the most popular religious places in Hong Kong:
