Yuen Yuen Institute

Yuen Yuen Institute Review

These pavilions and prayer halls built in the 1950s bring together the three streams of Chinese thought: Buddhism (which emphasizes nirvana and physical purity), Taoism (nature and inner peace), and Confucianism (following the practical and philosophical beliefs of Confucius). The main three-tier red pagoda is a copy of the Temple of Heaven in Beijing, and houses 60 statues representing the full cycle of the Chinese calendar—you can look for the one that corresponds to your birth year and make an incense offering. To reach the institute, take the MTR to Tsuen Wan, exit the station, and walk five minutes to Shiu Wo Street, then catch green Minibus 81 to To Lo Wai.
