It is located near the Che Kung Miu temple. On the third day of the first month in the Chinese calendar (also known as the third day of the Lunar New Year) many people use the station to get to the temple. The station is always crowded during those days.
The Hong Kong Heritage Museum can be seen on the left on a northbound Ma On Shan Rail train as it approaches the station. The museum itself can be reached by leaving Che Kung Temple station through Exit A and turning left and crossing the bridge over the Shing Mun River.
The Che Kung Temple can be reached by exiting the station through Exit B and turning right. The temple can be seen after a short 300m walk south along Che Kung Miu Road. It should be said, though, that Che Kung Temple is actually closer to Tai Wai Station than Che Kung Temple Station.
