    After a morning lap, I finally arrived in Hong Kong. The first time I came to Hong Kong, I chose to follow a group tour. The first stop was here. The Wong Tai Sin Temple, known as Wong Tai Sin, is one of the most popular temples in Hong Kong and is the first authorized statutory temple to hold wedding ceremonies in Hong Kong. The tour guide talked about Huang Daxian's life on the bus. He practised medicine all his life. The Huang Daxian worshipped in the temple is said to have responded to every request, so they go to worship the good faith like crucian carp every day. Huang Daxian Temple is magnificent in decoration, palace style and unique. Hong Kong people especially believe in geomantic omen and pay special attention to it. They do as the Romans do. The guide went into the temple gate, went up from the left and down from the right. These two Kirins are exquisitely crafted, lifelike and immortal.

    Taoism carries forward - "the unity of heaven and man, Taoism follows nature, things are different, angles are different, stages are different, understanding is different, cognition is different, Taoism is one, two, two, three, all things, after understanding, the world can be the same. Education originates from the law of human development, the law of growth, the law of success, and the degree of integration between teachers and students determines the degree of development of teachers and students. Hong Kong's Wong Tai Sin Temple follows the original name of Sise Garden. The temple covers an area of more than 18,000 square meters and was built in 1945. It is one of the most famous monuments in Kowloon, Hong Kong and enjoys a high reputation both in Hong Kong and overseas. According to history, Huang Daxian, also known as Chisong Fairy, is widely known for practicing medicine to save the world and enlightening all sides. At the end of the lunar calendar and the first to fifteenth days of the first lunar month, a large number of good faith believers go to the temple. All disciples of Huang Daxian gather in the main hall of the temple at noon to participate in sacrificial activities. According to the Ming Dynasty Wanli Dynasty "Jin Hua Fu Ji" - "Huang Daxian, originally named Huang Chuping, was born in a poor family in Jinhua Lanxi, Zhejiang Province, during the Eastern Jin Dynasty (AD 328). He was an 8-year-old shepherd on Chisong Mountain in Jinhua, Zhejiang Province. When he was 15 years old, he met the Taoist monk Shanbu when he was shepherding goats. When Shan Bu saw that Chuping had a different view, he took him to Chisong Mountain in Jinhua for 40 years to practice, and eventually became immortal. Therefore, Huang Daxian is aliased with "Chisongzi". Later, his brother Huang started to look for him. When brothers meet, they first ask - "Where is the sheep," Chuping loudly - "Sheep up!" The white stones on the hillside immediately become sheep. The couplet at the gate of Huang Da Xian Temple in Guangzhou "Passing on Sheep to Jin Dynasty, Riding Crane to South Sky" records the legendary story of Huang Da Xian becoming immortal. And in the rebuilt temple, the same couplet hangs in front of the Huang Da Xian Temple. Taoism is polytheism. Among many gods, Huang Daxian is quite famous. At that time, Huang Daxian traveled all over the world, curing illness and saving people, helping the world and helping the people in danger, leaving behind many immortal ways, whose merits and virtues are well known to all, and are welcomed by the broad masses of people, and many ancestral halls have been erected to honor him.

    Huang Da Xian Temple, it is said that its architectural layout is designed according to the results of divination in front of Huang Da Xian Hall in 1937 and strictly according to the principle of five elements and eight hexagrams - "Fire-shaped pyrotechnic Pavilion is built on the left side of the hall, murals symbolizing earth-shaped "Chao Buddha" are built in the middle of the courtyard, and gold-shaped Luntai is built on the West side. In front of the wooden hall, a Yuye Pool is built to match the water in the five elements. So far, all the five elements are ready to enter the Huang Da Xian Temple. There is a small pavilion on the left. The "Puji to persuade the good" on the plaque is the purpose of the Sise Garden. Across the pavilion, facing a wall, Qingling Baodong. Behind the wall is the Yuxiang Pavilion. Since Yuxiang Pavilion belongs to fire, there are ancient Buddhas with lights in it. This is the place to pray for health.

Behind the door of Confucius is the Linge Pavilion, which is dedicated to Confucius and his 72 disciples. According to legend, when Confucius was born, there was a Kirin with a jade Book passing by. Therefore, the world compared Kirin to Confucius, so it was named Linge. After Linge, Congxinyuan Garden with Chinese traditional garden style was built.

    There is Huang Daxian in Guangzhou and Huang Daxian in Hong Kong. In fact, Hong Kong went to Hong Kong in the 1920s because of the war. Guangzhou was rebuilt in the 1990s. So when we talk about Huang Daxian, we think that Hong Kong is authentic. Take the subway, as soon as you get out of the station, as for which exit, there are clear instructions at the entrance. It is suggested that we go after 2 p.m. because this is a must-see spot for the mainland's Hong Kong tour group. A large number of tourists pour in before 2 p.m. and the tour experience is very bad, mainly because it is too noisy. We should have been calm when we came to these places. No tickets, there used to be many ways to smear the stalls on the mainland (it is obvious that the evil forces paid their parents-in-law to be gunmen and let your government seize them or not). But in the past of August, there were no stalls. I don't know if they had been cleaned up or if the evil forces did not have enough money. Huang Daxian's actual area is not large, but because it is built according to the mountain situation, it is scattered in different places. Even if there is no religious belief, it can also be regarded as visiting gardens to appreciate.

    Huang Daxian is a famous Taoist God in Hong Kong. Many Southeast Asian Taiwanese come here to worship Huang Daxian. It is believed that Huang Daxian is very spiritual and respectful. Therefore, traveling in Hong Kong necessarily requires a signature to wish Huang Daxian to bless his affairs smoothly. In addition to the main hall, there are three sacred halls in Huang Daxian Temple. After entering Huang Daxian Temple from Xinyuan, everyone can enter nine incenses free of charge and then worship three incenses in each hall. In order to be happy and safe, there are also couples in Huang Da Xian Temple who want to have a good marriage. They must bow to the old man next month with red ropes in hand. There are free red ropes to tie to the red ropes on both sides of the old man after the bow is finished, in order to protect the smooth and smooth feelings of the old man.

    What impressed me most was that many kinds of plants were planted in the garden. The flowing water and the sound of Guqin made people feel peaceful and comfortable. Especially like the following couplet "Facilitate the opening of the door to cast rain, Tathagata is close to Ciyun. There are five different types of buildings built in the garden according to the five elements of "gold, wood, water, fire and soil". It is not necessary to elaborate here. Visitors are expected to come to the scene and uncover the mystery by themselves. The famous Huang Da Xian Temple is full of incense. Interested people can also ask for signatures and divination. Before going, Baidu specifically inquired about Huang Daxian's life, and admired and respected Chisong Fairy's medical salvation.

One grass, one tree, rockery water, especially that small waterfall is really. It's very good. Many people take pictures in front of it. Everything here makes people feel bright. If we go to Huang Daxian, this garden is really worth visiting.~

    Hong Kong's famous and legendary Wong Tai Xian Temple is located in Kowloon. No one in Hong Kong or even in Guangdong should be unaware of it. When we go there, the incense in the temple is just like the flourish in legend. It is said that marriage is very effective. And there are also Taoist weddings in this place. The small area of Hong Kong, this Wong Tai Xian Temple occupies an open space, but the whole temple is golden and green. The magnificence and magnificence of its architecture are sufficient to show its position in the minds of Hong Kong people.

    Wong Tai Xian Temple is the most famous temple on this side of Hong Kong. It is the first time that Hong Kong has visited this side so many times. It takes the subway to Huang Tai Xian Metro Station and then comes out not far away. There is a building and a large shopping mall on this side. Huang Da Xian Temple is a temple with three religions in one. It is situated on a small hillside. Therefore, different buildings are scattered in different places. It is well-known far and near. In front of Huang Da Xian Hall, there are many people seeking signatures here. After completing the signature, they can go to the back and get a signature, three Hong Kong dollars. There are many small shops. Any one can be found. The price is a little expensive. There are more people selling incense outside, similar to domestic temples. As a Taoist temple, there are also Tai Sui Temple and 12 zodiac portraits. What is more interesting is that there are special donation places here, which can be used to brush Octopus or donate in the counter. They are comparatively standardized and modern. It's ticket-free here, so it's good to come and walk around.
