Kwun Yum Temple (Hung Hom) is one of the famous Kuan Yin temples in Hong Kong. This temple is famous for borrowing money. During Chinese New Year, the temple will prepare a red envelope (Ang Pao) for you, but if it’s not during the festival, you should prepare it yourself. The temple will open from 8:00 AM – 5:45 PM.

Notice that signs are pointing the way to Guanyin Temple at regular intervals. When reaching the way down, another sign will tell you to turn right into Gillies Avenue South.

For anyone who wants to borrow money but not during the opening day of the treasury, You should prepare red envelopes to apply for a loan. The method is to bring red envelopes from Thailand. Inside, put money as we want. For example, put a hundred banknotes, then take a red or pink piece of paper and write “Kwan Im Blessing “Hundred million baht” and write on the front of the envelope an amount equal to that in the envelope “One hundred million baht” and prayed that “if the child ….name-surname Date of birth….. Blessed according to the amount written on the envelope within this year. Next year will come back to pay homage to thank you. And donate money to the temple in the amount of…….depending on the faith…….baht”, then bring it around the incense burner three rounds (or nine rounds) clockwise.
**When circling, use the hand to circulate the envelope above the incense at the incense burner. Then keep that red envelope. as if we had already borrowed money from the Goddess of Mercy. When he achieved the results he had prayed for, he would return and make merit. But we will not be able to borrow money again. If we haven’t brought the original envelope back to the Guanyin
