Hung Shing Temple, Tai Kok Tsui was originally a temple in Fuk Chuen Village located at the intersection of the Boundary Street and Tai Kok Tsui Road. In 1928, the Government re-developed  Fuk Chuen Village and in 1930, the Temple was relocated to the present site in Fuk Tsun Street which was named after the Village.

A bronze bell engraved with the 7th year of the Guangxu reign (1881) of the Qing Dynasty and the laid down stone in 1930 are placed inside the Temple. Apart from the God of the Sea "Hung Shing", Wong Tai Sin, Kwun Yum, God of the Earth, Pak Tai, etc. are also worshipped inside the Temple.

Hung Shing, also known as the "God of Southern Sea", is a famous deity in Southern China. Hung Shing was conferred the title of the "King of Kwong Lee" during the Tang Dynasty (618 - 907) and was further honoured with a posthumous title of “King Hung Shing of Kwong Lee” in the Song Dynasty (960 - 1279). Followers worship Hung Shing to pray for safe voyage and good weather.

The Temple was rated Grade 3 historic building in 2010.
