  • Took me a long time to find it because I am directionally challenged. Was worth the walk. Really loved the peaceful feeling and connection to traditional HK 
  • There are a couple of the man mo temples in Hong Kong but this is the biggest. Sadly it was under heavy refurbishment but you could still enter and place incense for a donation of choice. Very authent...  read more »
  • This would've actually been a little hard to find if we hadn't taken a taxi as it wasn't overly well signposted. It is currently undergoing some major restoration work so was packed with people and re...  read more »
  • This is a really unique temple. Like most Chinese temples, it is the embodiment of many schools of religious thought all in one. What is special about this temple are the neat pyramidal coil incense. Though, beware, the sheer amount of incense and candles burned in the small space is enough to suffocate you, and while most incense are generally okay, it could be scary to think what you're really breathing in in a cloudy area like this. Besides that, the fortune telling aspect is pretty neat, though you can do that at any other temple. Whether or not the coils are unique to this temple, they aren't, but the numbers are a neat draw. You can also see what a chinese style mausoleum looks like.
  • Cool temple with a whole new level of incense use. There are giant spirals of incense hanging from all over the ceilimg, incense sticks along the wall. Just really cool. Definitely come here if you're in the area.
  • Extremely traditional old-times Taoist Hongkong temple, with incense coils hanging around the heart of the temple. They have many deities in the temple, and the feels is there from the moment you enter the temple. Very well maintained considering the age of the temple.
  • Probably one of Hongkongs better temples, and the location makes it easy to access for visitors. Worth a butchers when in the area (as you undoubtedly will be).
  • One of the most beautiful temple in Hong Kong. Easy accessible....
