Yuk Wong Po Din, Shau Kei Wan
  The temple is located at A Kung Ngam. At the beginning of the 19th century, people from Huizhou (惠州) and Chaozhou (潮州) mined stones in the nearby hill side for the urban development. They set up a shrine to worship Yuk Wong and the shrine was turned into a small temple at the early 20th century.
