The Confucian culture and display of shrines.

Sightseeing in Hong Kong – The close ties to death

The Confucian culture emphasises respect for one’s parents, elders and ancestors. With this in mind, the sight of ancestral shrines on our walking tours in Hong Kong, are not rare. These shrines are dedicated to deified ancestors and progenitors of surname lineages or families in the Chinese traditional religion. Depending on the ethnic background these temple settings may vary. Your well informed Hello Hong Kong tour guide will be able to tell you more about it on your Hong Kong sightseeing!
