Man Mo Temple in Sheung Wan, on Hong Kong island. Hong Kong

The Man Mo Temple is in Sheung Wan, on Hong Kong island.

It is a picturesque tribute to the God of Literature (Man) and the God of War (Mo), both of whom were worshipped by ambitious students looking to succeed in the civil examinations of Imperial China.

Built in 1847, this remains the largest Man Mo temple in Hong Kong.
