Lin Fa Temple (literally temple of lotus) at Tai Hang was probably constructed in 1863 for the worship of Kwun Yam, the Goddess of Mercy. With its strong association with the Fire Dragon Dance of Tai Hang, it is an important historic landmark to the local community. The fire dragon dance is held in the evening of the 14th, 15th and 16th of the eighth lunar month each year.
The architecture of the temple is different from the others: the front hall is half-octagonal in shape, connected to the rectangular main hall with no courtyard in-between. An arched opening with a balustrade is constructed in the middle of the façade, access to the temple is through two staircases on the left and right ends of the front hall. In this Workshop, we will get to know more about this historic temple.
