Representing Water of the Five Elements, it is a circular fountain in front of the Archives Hall. The 1936 Fountain was made from bricks patterned in cross, while in 1961 it became a spherical sprinkling flower wreath. The 1993 design comprised seven lotuses, representing the Qi bao (七寶) of Taoist alchemy.

The architecture of Wong Tai Sin Temple is based on the Five Elements, that is, the Bronze Pavilion representing “Metal”, the Archives Hall representing “Wood”, the Yuk Yik Fountain representing “Water”, the Yue Heung Shrine representing “Fire”, and the Earth Wall representing “Earth” – all five elements have been incorporated.
