Oddly situated in the centre of the pavement of Bulkeley Street of Hung Hom, Fuk Tak Temple is small but complete. The temple provides space for worshippers to burn incense and make offerings, as well as fortune-telling services. Featuring red walls and green tiles, the temple is dedicated to Fuk Tak Ching San, the local earth god. There is no inscription that tells the history of the building of the temple. However, according to oral history in the community, the temple was built in the Song Dynasty. The staff of the temple said that during the Second World War, a free school next to the Kwun Yam Temple in Hung Hom was mistakenly bombed by the Allied Forces and caused many deaths. Ashes of the deceased students were first kept at the police station next to the Kwun Yam Temple, and were later transferred to and preserved in Fuk Tak Temple.
Fuk Tak Temple has been attracting a large number of worshippers till this day. Every year, various rituals, such as parades, Chinese operas, incense burning ceremonies and so on. are held by the Hung Hom (Three Districts) Kaifong Association to celebrate the birthday of Fuk Tak Ching San.
The project is supported by Lord Wilson Heritage Trust.
