Kowloon City Hau Wong Temple 九龍城侯王廟


The temple was built more than 200 years ago. It was thought that the temple was dedicated to a war general named Yeung Leung Jit but no one is sure nowadays. There are a lot of historic relics inside the temple. After sketching the entrance corridor, I included the spearheads of eight of the sixteen beautifully-crafted spears placed on both sides of the temple corridor. They might be symbols depicting the Eight Immortals often times depicted in Classical Chinese literature but I'm not completely sure.
