Che Kung Temple Station is a station on Hong Kong's Ma On Shan Line. It is located on Che Kung Miu Road, Sha Tin. Its position was Sha Tin Tau Temporary Housing Area, so it was originally named as "Sha Tin Tau Station" before the Ma On Shan Line operated.

It is located near the Che Kung Miu temple. On the third day of the first month in the Chinese calendar (also known as the third day of the Lunar New Year) many people use the station to get to the temple. The station is always crowded during those days.

Che Kung Temple station serves residential areas such as Chun Shek Estate, Fung Shing Court, Sha Tin Tau New Village. It also serves five schools, three churches and three temples. Although it is called "Che Kung Temple Station", Tai Wai Station is nearer to Che Kung Miu(Temple) than this station.[1]
