Chun Kwan Temple in Hong Kong.

Chun Kwan (Chinese: 真君) is a deity in China with surname Ng (). At the reign of Emperor Lizong in South Sung Dynasty, Guangdong was frequently raided by pirates; the government's military having little success against the pirates, the people suffered. Ng led a force and annihilated the bands of pirates and returned peace to people.

After his death, his spirit performed good deeds in Lung Kong and the Emperor awarded him the title of Chun Kwan Tai Tai (真君大帝) and built temples for him.

He has done various kind acts on Tsing Yi Island of Hong Kong and a memorial was inscribed in Chun Kwan Temple on the island.
