We signed up for a half day Hong Kong Island tour with my family on our second day in Hong Kong since we never get to do the tourist thing yet. So our first stop was the Man Mo Temple in Sheung Wan. Built in 1847, this temple is dedicated to the gods, Man (Literature) and Mo (Martial Arts). The temple is famous for its many well-polished brass and pewter incense burners. The strong smell of the incense/joss sticks filled the temple and it irritated my nose a bit so I just made a quick tour around the temple. I did find the many hanging spiral joss sticks in the temple was quite a scene compared to other temples that I’d been to.
Address: No. 124-126 Hollywood Road, in Sheung Wan.
Opening hours: 8:00am to 6:00pm daily.
