Lin Fa Temple

In April 2017, I also visited Lin Fa Temple, also known as Lin Fa Kung (蓮花宮).  It is a small temple, which was constructed for worship on Guan Yin (Kwun Yam) in 1863, during the Qing dynasty, after Guan Yin showed up on a boulder in the spot where the temple now stands.  Inside of the temple, you can actually see this Lotus Rock, which the temple is built on/around.  When I visited, I also noted that many people were waiting for their fortunes to be told by an oracle, using the traditional yarrow sticks and the I-Ching.  All three windows a pair of Chinese couplets on each side, celebrating nature and Kwan Yin.
