Located behind Victoria Park and nestled amongst residential buildings and local schools, the small but uniquely structured Lin Fa Kung, Lotus Temple and Garden, which houses Kwun Yum, goddess of mercy, is the local attraction.

Kwun Yum is said to have appeared near the huge rock where the temple is located. So the followers built a temple near the rock to worship Kwun Yum.

For safety reasons, the Hong Kong government banned the practice of cooking on sampans and this tradition was put to an end in the 1970s. The cooks therefore moved on land.
