Po Leung Kuk and Kwan Ti Traditions

Located inside the Main Building, the Kwan Ti Hall houses the altar of Kwan Ti, the god of loyalty, justice, benevolence and courage. As one of the most loved spot of our Museum, it presents to visitors the Kuk’s culture of Kwan Ti worshipping.
This tradition can be traced back as early as the establishment of the Kuk in 19th century. From adoptions to marriages of the Kuk’s residents, many ceremonies were held solemnly in front of the altar of Kwan Ti. Each year, the Kuk celebrates the birthday of Kwan Ti on the 24th June of the lunar calendar, where past directors,government officials and dignitaries would be invited to join the Board to offer sacrifices to Kwan Ti and continue our tradition.
