One of the most popular temples in Hong Kong. A short walk from Hollywood street. Great atmosphere at the temple, though a bit smokey and crowded inside the temple. If anyone wants to visit a temple in HK, Man Mo is highly recommended.

The temple is wedged between high rise buildings which detract from the beauty of the building - but it is there as a reminder of Hongkong's past. It is home to the God of Literature (Man) and the God of War (Mo) - they were both worshipped and prayed to by students who were taking the tough (and prestigious) exams to become administrators in Imperial China. It was built in 1847 and it became part of the declared monuments in 2009. You are welcome to enter as a visitor, there is a heavy arome of incense which comes from large hanging coils and from incense sticks bouht by worshippers. The interior is impressive, a worthwhile visit. Hollywood Road is full of small antique shops, you are away from the Hongkong of giant shopping centres, perhaps a reminder of gentler times.

I felt those who come to see Hong Kong this is a place they should visit. Into the incense burning smoky prayer hall. I stepped into a time-capsule. Not only the peoples culture but also the beautiful ornery decorations and idols.

A must visit tourist spot in the Sheung Wan region. The temple built in 1847 pays tribute to the God of Literature and God of War. It's widely worshipped by ambitious students and locals for success in civil examinations and for good health, good luck and prosperity of the family respectively. It is a listed Grade 1 historical building and is preserved as a declared monument. The charisteristic incence coils demonstrates the divinity.
