Lo Pan Temple
15 Ching Lin Terrace

Lo Pan is the Patron Saint of Chinese Builders and Contractors. His real name was Gongshu Ban and was believed to be born in 507 B.C. in the State of Lu (now Shandong province). His festival falls on the 13th of the 6th month of the Lunar calendar. Located in 15 Ching Lin Terrace, this is the only temple in Hong Kong erected to him by the Contractor’s Guild with donations from many people connected with the trade in 1884. Its layout is a “two courtyards and three halls” type, with elaborate “fire” type parapet walls, sculptural figures, relieves and paintings. The land ownership changed several times and was acquired by the temple management company Kwong Yuet Tong in 1921.
