Located on the corner of Hollywood Road and Ladder Street, Man Mo Temple was constructed in the 1840s and is one of Hong Kong's oldest and atmospheric temples. Man Mo means civil and military, and the temple is devoted to the God of Literature Man Cheong and the God of War Kuan Ti. This temple is famous with both the Buddhist as well as Daoist communities in Hong Kong.
Giant bell shaped coils of incense burned by the devout hang from the ceiling and the temple is wrapped in the smoke and scent of burning incense. Beside the entrance are wooden sedan chairs which look like small shrines, dating from the 19th century. Throughout religious festivals, these chairs were used to carry the statues around the streets of Hong Kong.

Man Mo Temple is definitely one of the popular tourist attractions in China. It is worth paying a visit while touring the country. This place will leave a pleasing and unforgettable memory and justify the proud cultural tradition of China.
