Yuk Wong Kung Din, A Kung Ngam Shau Kei Wan

 
 

The temple is located at A Kung Ngam and is also called Yuk Wong Bo Din (玉皇寶殿). At the beginning of the 19th century, people from Huizhou (惠州) and Chaozhou (潮州) mined stones in the hill for the development of the urban area. They set up a shrine to worship Yuk Wong. At the beginning of the 20th century, the shrine was developed into a small temple.

According to the Original Deeds of the Lofty Jade Emperor (高上玉皇本行集經), Jade Emperor is the son of the King of the Pure Blissful Kingdom of Lofty Heavenly Lights and Ornaments and of the Empress of Precious Moonlight. He was bright and clever when young, and kind and benevolent as a grown-up. He devoted the entire state treasury to the needy. In the Taoist world, Jade Emperor is the deity of the highest order.
