the proceeds of the temple support a local hospital. The temple was decorated highly but was quiet and provoked reverence. The guide was helpful in explaining the history. The last room contained 'cubbies or cells' with pictures of the departed. Of interest was the posted price required to purchase a cell which varied depending on the placement on a very... More

I liked the serenity & the incense coils hanging all around the temple. At first I did not know & was coolly standing below one of those. Then I happened to read somewhere about the falling ashes!!! But quite photogenic. Its located in the old area of Hong Kong, so its got that vintage feel. A good experience of the... More

Small but well kept temple on a quiet part of Hollywood Road - 2mins away from PMQ and nestled close to some great restaurants and parallel to Cat Street / Upper Lascar Road. Been here over 3 times in the last month (less than 5mins from where I'm staying) Donations are welcome so pick up some incense and say a... More

A beautiful temple with the most amazing incense coils. Wonderful to respectfully observe the local traditions and way of life. Be sure to check out the antique area on streets near by as very interesting insight into the culture.

A lovely small temple filled with huge spirals of incense and a number of large Buddhas. A tranquil destination in the middle of a busy, interesting area which includes the 'Cat Street' market and lots of antique shops. Well worth a visit.

Stumbled across this while wandering in HK - very peaceful and friendly with great sights and smells. As others have said, its smoky but don't let that put you off. Friendly staff

I walk by this temple every day on my walk to work and have never stopped by as it is always closed. This weekend, I stopped in and it is great for pictures and very peaceful. There is a very strong incense small and incense burning all around so if you are sensitive to smoke or smell, I don't recommend... More

Almost felt like a local - no big crowds - no flashing lights, no trashy tourist spots.. You have to like the incredibly thick strong incense filled air.. it is over powering, but your in a Chinese temple! Hard to find if you don't find Ladder St. to take you there the first time on your map - made quite... More

Although the temple doesn't look like much from the exterior, the interior is pretty amazing. The coiled incense hanging from the ceiling is pretty cool to see. You don't need to spend a lot of time here, but make it a part of your Hong Kong visit.

Man Mo Temple is located in Sheung Wan area, a short walk from the MTR stop Sheung Wan. If you by chance are at the Holiday Inn Express Soho, cross the street up the stairs to Queen's Rd, up more stairs to Hollywood Rd. Man Mo Temple is right there. It is a very small temple right on the street.... More
