It also handles temple registration.[2] There are 19 additional temples, of which management has been delegated to other organisations.[3]

The Committee is chaired by the Secretary for Home Affairs. It consists of eight persons, including the chairman of the Board of Directors of the Tung Wah Group of Hospitals and six persons appointed by the Secretary for Home Affairs through delegated authority by the Chief Executive.[1]
