Kwun Tong Tai Wong Ye Temple was originally located in Lok Fu. Owing to community development, it was rebuilt in 1963 at its present site on the hill behind Tsui Ying House of Tsui Ping South Estate. The Temple is solemnly decorated, with its exterior walls inlaid with porcelain pictures of dragon and tiger on the left and right respectively.

The Temple was built to worship Li Man Chung, the ancestor of a loyal general of the Song Dynasty (960 - 1279). It is said that General Li carried the spirit tablet of his ancestor and followed the last emperor of the Song Dynasty, Emperor Zhao Bing, to flee to the south driven by the Mongol troops. The spirit tablet was then placed at Lo Fu Ngam (nowadays Lok Fu). Legend has it that many people had seen the spirit of Li Man Chung and therefore built a temple to worship him. According to the historical book “Old Book of Tang”, there was a senior officer in the Tang Dynasty (618 - 907) called Li Yuan Hong (courtesy name Li Man Chung). However, whether Li Yuan Hong was the Li Man Chung enshrined in the Temple could not be ascertained.
