Man Mo Temple

Man Mo Temple Review

No one knows exactly when Hong Kong Island's oldest temple was built—the consensus is sometime around the arrival of the British in 1841. The temple is dedicated to the Taoist gods of literature and of war: Man, who wears green, and Mo, dressed in red. The temple bell, cast in Canton in 1847, and the drum next to it are sounded to attract the gods' attention when a prayer is being offered.
