Hong Kong is a diverse city with an abundance of cultural variety in food and entertainment. Interestingly, this diversity also extends to religion. According to a study by the Pew Research Center, Hong Kong ranks among the top 10 territories in the world with the highest religious diversity.
Despite these statistics, many Hong Kong residents do not have a religious background and may not perceive “religion” as relevant to their lives. However, by paying attention to the communities around us and exploring the streets and alleys, we can uncover traces of different religious cultures deeply rooted in Hong Kong. By engaging with them and immersing ourselves in their lives, we can understand how these cultures from various parts of the world have integrated into Hong Kong and become a part of the city, creating their own unique Hong Kong narratives.

Explore Religious Diversity – Kowloon Mosque
When discussing the busiest places in Tsim Sha Tsui, Nathan Road undoubtedly ranks among the top. This bustling street is lined with a variety of shops, but the most striking building is the Kowloon Mosque, which showcases an exotic architectural style.
You may have walked past the Kowloon Mosque in Hong Kong countless times, but have you ever ventured inside? Allow us to guide you through the largest mosque in Hong Kong, where you’ll have the opportunity to learn about Islamic culture, customs, and the history of Islam in Hong Kong from the imam (Islamic priest).
Explore Religious Diversity – Wan Chai Mosque
Visit the mosque that hosts the largest population of Chinese Muslims in Hong Kong. Learn about the lives of Hong Kong’s Chinese Muslims and explore how Islamic culture has influenced Chinese culture, and vice versa.
The Oi Kwan Road Mosque boasts a unique feature: an Islamic restaurant that serves Halal Cantonese dim sum! Islamic teachings forbid the consumption of pork, so the dim sum here is prepared without any pork ingredients. Rest assured, the taste is on par with traditional Cantonese dim sum found elsewhere. Are you intrigued to give it a try?
Baha’i Faith not only allows but encourages its followers to engage in dialogue with people of different religious backgrounds, and even invites individuals of various faiths to pray together in their own languages with their own sacred texts. This challenges common stereotypes about religions being incompatible with one another.
We are proud to partner with the Baha’i Centre in Hong Kong to explore the unique aspects of the Baha’i Faith, experience their daily gatherings, and sample traditional home-cooked meals from different cultures that reflect their belief in “the oneness of humanity.”
