Temple of the Month

August 2013 : Hong Kong Temple

Dedicated in 2006 by President Gordon B. Hinkley, The Hong Kong China Temple is located in the beautiful residential district of Kowloon Tong, a suburb of Hong Kong on the Kowloon Peninsula.

The temple proper occupies the top three floors of the building while a meetinghouse, mission office, apartments for the temple president and mission president, and Beehive Clothing outlet fill the balance of the building.

Under the plaza level is the baptistry and underground parking facility.

The striking edice, characterized by Hong Kong colonial architecture, features high arching windows, ornamented walls, and a gold dome supporting the single spire and gold-leafed angel Moroni statue.

The Hong Kong China Temple was the first multipurpose temple built by the Church, as envisioned and sketched by President Gordon B. Hinckley in the nighttime hours following a pleading prayer.
