|Ching Chung Koon|
Shun Yeung Din (純陽殿; "Palace of Pure Yang") in Ching Chung Koon.
The building is a Taoist temple originally opened as a rural retreat in 1949. This peaceful temple also contains many treasures, such as lanterns from Beijing's Imperial Palace. The temple is divided into several houses where many dead peoples' bone ashes are permanently stored in special apartments with their picture, name, date of birth, date of death and place of origin. During the Ching Ming and Chung Yeung Festivals, many people come here to remember their relatives or friends who have died.
Besides the temple, there are also Chinese-style gardens, a small man-made "hill" and fishponds. Ching Chung Koon also features bonsai exhibitions which are held periodically.
A clinic in Ching Chung Koon offers economical medical services to nearby residents.
