Che Kung Temple (Chinese: 車公廟) is a station on Hong Kong's Ma On Shan Line. It is located on Che Kung Miu Road in Sha Tin in the New Territories. Its position was Sha Tin Tau Temporary Housing Area, so it was provisionally called "Sha Tin Tau" before the Ma On Shan Line opened.
It is located near the Che Kung Miu temple. On the third day of the first month in the Chinese calendar (also known as the third day of the Lunar New Year) many people use the station to get to the temple. The station is always crowded during those days.
Che Kung Temple station serves residential areas such as Chun Shek Estate, Fung Shing Court and Sha Tin Tau New Village. It also serves five schools, three churches and three temples. Although it is called "Che Kung Temple Station", Tai Wai Station is nearer to Che Kung Miu (the temple) than this station.
Che Kung Temple Station Wikipedia
Other than Tai Wai, Che Kung Temple is the only Ma On Shan Line station with side platforms. Passengers must choose the right escalator to go to the corresponding platform.
The Hong Kong Heritage Museum can be seen on the left on a northbound Ma On Shan Rail train as it approaches the station. The museum itself can be reached by leaving Che Kung Temple station through Exit A and turning left and crossing the bridge over the Shing Mun River.
The Che Kung Temple can be reached by exiting the station through Exit B and turning right. The temple can be seen after a short 300m walk south along Che Kung Miu Road. It should be said, though, that Che Kung Temple is actually closer to Tai Wai Station than Che Kung Temple Station.KMB
