Little hideaway on Hollywood Road near Ladder Street. There is not much to see, but when you go inside it is fascinating. The smell of incense is intense, but does add to the aura. The main problem I had was the the blatant commercialism inside...More

Whilst in Central this is worth a visit. Take the mid level escalators then the short walk to the temple. Make a donation and light an incense stick in the temple to make most of the visit.

Mon Mo Temple is one of the oldest temples in Hong Kong. We loved the sacred atmosphere of the temple with a lot of coiled incenses hanging from the ceiling. Highly recommended.

I really love this place. It has an awesome calm atmosphere. It is so photogenic if a little smokey with the burning incense but it is an active temple for worshipping not a tourist attraction. It's a gotta do on the Hong Kong list.
