Travelled quite a distance to visit this temple and very underwhelming. A lot of work going on at the minute is like a building site. If you have something better to do give this a miss.

The temple is nice too look at and has three halls you can look into. There is no entry, which is great. However you also don't see very much. If you are around do it. But not a must.

Our first temple visit and found the experience quite spiritual. It did feel strange wandering around while people were actively worshipping. The temple is tiny so any trip will be brief so a great place to visit if you have some spare time between activities....More

Man mo is a nice little temple to visit and get into the local culture. Nothing is in English but you get the idea of what’s going on by just watching. There’s no ac so it’s very hot and stuffy inside.

There is a small shop to the right of the main door with postcards and Chinese horoscope, prayer & lucky charms. Quite well priced. Incense for prayers available inside temples.
