Religious safaris should always be a part of your tour. A visit to Man Mo Temple Hong Kong can give a nice kick start to that. Man Mo temple is a Cantonese transliteration of Wen Wu Temple. This temple was established for the worship of 2 Gods, Man Cheong (the literature God) and Mo Tai or Kwan Tai (the martial God). Students and scholars of Ming and Qing dynasties worshipped these Gods to seek success in civil service examinations. Out of many Man Mo temples in Hong Kong Sheung wan is the best known one. This temple has an altogether different atmosphere inside. The worshipper’s burn incense sticks and situate them in the bronze urns. It is believed that this brings good fortune. You can take cameras with you but using flash is totally prohibited.
