Located at Kwun Yam Wan Road in Cheung Chau, Kwan Kung Pavilion was built in 1973. Adopting a pavilion outlook, this traditional temple is called “pavilion” instead of “temple”. The roof of this red-colour pavilion is made of cyan glazed roof tiles. An incense burner stands in front of the temple.
The temple is dedicated to Kwan Tai. Kwan Tai refers to Guan Yu (courtesy name Yunchang) who was a famous military general of the State of Shu during the Three Kingdoms period (220 – 280). He was reputed as "the enemy of ten thousand people", and is the paradigm of mightiness, loyalty and righteousness. Kwan Tai is widely glorified and worshipped for his wisdom, trustworthiness, benevolence, righteousness and courage.
