I Shing Temple (Wang Chau, Yuen Long)

I Shing Temple is situated at the multi-clan village of Wang Chau in Yuen Long. The temple was constructed by the villagers around the 57th year of Kangxi (1718) to promote communal spirit. It was dedicated to the worship of the two deities, Hung Shing and Che Kung. The building is a two-hall structure with an open courtyard in between. Although it underwent renovations in the 1970s and 1980s, most of its original features were kept intact. The temple was declared a monument in 1996. Full restoration was carried out in the same year with funds from the Hong Kong Jockey Club.
