The official website provides a glance of local history in Hong Kong. It is extremely useful because it enlists different periods of Hong Kong in its development from ancient time to modern age.

This official website provides virtual tours and into temples under their umbrella that you do not actually need a physical visit to their temples alongside with photos and descriptions.

A very useful source for history and archaeology enthusiasts to dig out more interesting facts about the history and development of Hong Kong.
