This really is a small but beautiful serene temple. Aromas fill the air. Find out about the history and symbolic / religious meaning before you just light an incense stick or coil so that you can bang a 'drum' Give a donation because you feel ...... Nice if you relax and just .... Think? ABOUT LIFE!...... And all that in... More

Located a bit far from our hotel this temple was accessible by tram and a short walk uphill. The temple is very nice inside and you can see worshippers praying and burning ceremonial money etc. We were very interested and paid for some incense so that we would partake in the prayer to Buddha. An amazing temple to see.

So glad we made the effort to see this beautiful temple. The walk up ladder street is tough but worth it. There are free incense sticks or you can buy pack for a few dollars. You are allowed to take photos but can not use a flash. The smell of sandalwood and incense is wonderful and you can also have... More

Amid the tall buildings on a steep, hilly road lies this little, quaint temple. The incense coils hanging like chandeliers from the ceilings are interesting to note.

I was looking for something new to see in Hong Kong and read about this temple. It is very small and out of the way, but a glimpse into Hong Kong history and culture I found it moderately interesting. I'd recommend stopping by if you're in the Hollywood Road area, but it's not worth the taxi fare for a special... More

Nestled amongst huge buildings, Man Mo Temple is something different. It's pretty small but it's worth a quick visit..

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
