Che Kung was a military commander in ancient China and protected the Chinese Emperor from the Mongol invasion. Therefore, nowadays he is worshipped as a God of protection in Hong Kong. Thousands of people come to his temple annually on his birthday to worship him and turn a special wheel of fortune.
