There are a number of temples in the neighborhood, including one of the largest on Hong Kong Island: the Pak Tai Temple in Lung On Street.

This place of worship with three halls, dedicated to Pak Tai, the god of the sea, dates to 1863. In the main hall, there is a three-meter-high statue, sculpted some 400 years ago. This building is simply fabulous, featuring a wealth of statues and decorations both inside and outside that will leave you awestruck. Note the dragon sculptures at the sides of the entrance stairs, and the colored dragons on the roof: they represent peace, fortune and wealth.
