Hong San Keong (GPS: 5.40753, 100.33535; Traditional Chinese: 鳳山宫; Simplified Chinese: 凤山宫; Pinyin: Fèng Shān Gōng) is a Chinese temple in the Macallum Street Ghaut part of George Town, Penang. The name Hong San Keong means "Temple of Phoenix Mountain". The present temple building was completed around 2012 though the temple itself dates back to 1963, when it was part of the Koay Jetty.

The prayer hall of Hong San Keong has images of the deities installed at the far end. The sanctuary comprises three alcoves. The central alcove houses the principal deity, Guang Ze Zun Wang (廣澤尊王). Auxiliary deities are installed on the side alcoves; to the left is Qing Shui Zu Shi (清水祖師) while to the right is Fen Yang Wang (汾陽王).
