If this is the nicest temple in Hing Kong I really wonder what the others look like. It was under construction when we were there but even without there is not a lot to see. Have seen much nicer temples in Singapore...

This temple was slightly off the beaten track but well worth visiting. We took the elevated escalators (travelators) most of the way up which was great fun and the local area was rather cool. The temple itself is beautiful with numerous spiral incense sticks hanging and creating a wonderful atmosphere. Don't miss it!

Stumbled on it while antique shopping so investigated. Packed with people & not that interesting. Might be better if more of it's history was known.

A nice an quite spot in the always superbusy Hong Kong. The smell of the incense burning gets to you from meters ahead when walking through Hollywood road. Prayers from all age and condition gather here to honour both gods and ancesters. A nice and pleasent visit for tourists. In one street close by a lot of antiquities are displayed... More

Seeing this temple was worth the tough walk up and down the city steps. I made a donation, lit incense, said a prayer. I had the full experience here.

The man mo temple is a place you would love to visit if you like to be in religious places. The temple has very colorful and artistic interiors. The place has fantastic artifacts.

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.
