Man Mo Temple

A traditional and well kept Taoist temple in the heart of busy Hong Kong the Man Mo Temple on Hollywood road is well worth a look.  Now run by the charitable organisation Tung Wah Hospital it was originally built as a private alter by local business people in the 1840s.

The temple worships to separate Taoist gods, one of Literature and one of Martial Arts.  A strange combination perhaps but one that works in Hong Kong.

With traditional green tiled roofs, white walls, and gold lettering the temples stand out from the boring high rise blocks next door and give a reminder of what all of HK must have looked like a hundred years ago.

Entrance fees and opening hours

Open from 8am to 6pm it is free to enter but a donation is of course always accepted as in most places of worship these days.

Getting there

An easy walk along Hollywood Road or up Ladder Street will take you right to the temple.


The antique shops along Hollywood Road are an interesting place to browse but "good deals" are rare when the shop keeps do know the true value of what they are selling. There is also a nice little children's playground across the road from the temple.
