莲花宫建于1846年，是一座观音庙宇。观音菩萨是南海的守护神，为当年渔民供奉，保佑生活安定。 莲花宫与大坑舞火龙有着密切关系，插满香枝的火龙在开始巡游前，会先到莲花宫向观音大士参拜祈福。 more »Built in 1846, Lotus Palace is a temple of Guanyin.

An interesting little temple that you can visit in Causeway Bay is the Lin Fa Kung Temple on Lin Fa Kung Street West, only a 5-6 minute walk from the more famous Tin Hau (Causeway Bay) Temple found near the Tin Hau MTR Station. The temple is open daily from 7.30am to 5.00pm and is free to visit. The Lin Fa Kung Temple is a uniquely designed, small round shaped temple built in 1863 that is dedicated to Kwun Yum also known as the goddess of Mercy. There is only one main chamber room with a ground floor level room, filled with interesting items of worship and altar area as well as a small upstairs level where more statues of intrigue await, including hundreds of small lotus lamps lit under the statue of Kwun Yum. A large rock makes up part of the back wall and is prominently exposed from the upstairs section of the temple. This is interesting to locate and have a look at. Don't forget to look up because there is a very nice dragon fresco on the ceiling of the temple that is well worth taking a picture. You can visit the Lin Fa Kung Temple in as little as 10-15 minutes and it makes a great addition to a visit to the nearby Tin Hau Temple, combined they can give you a sense of the religious affiliations many local people have with the deities of worship. This temple is particularly busy during Kwun Yum festival as well as the Mid-Autumn festival periods.
The temple is a Chinese two-hall vernacular building with the front hall in half-octagonal shape. It is connected to the rectangular main hall with no courtyard in between. Right in the middle of the façade is an arched opening with a balustrade. Access to the temple is through two staircases on left and right ends of the front hall. The hall is supported by greenbrick arches standing on a granite arched terrace. The rectangular end hall with its back sitting on rocks having a big boulder still surfaced houses the Kwun Yam at the altar with other deities including Tai Sui (太歲), Fook Tak (福德) and others. The front hall has double-eaves-pyramidal (重檐攢尖頂) roof whilst the main hall’s is in flush gable (硬山) style. The main ridge of the main hall is decorated with a pearl, a pair of fish, floral and geometric decorations and others.
