Man Mo Temple in Tai Po

After the visit to the Hong Kong Railway Museum I walked over to the waterfront park – and on the way to the park, I passed an interesting temple, a Man Mo Temple.

Don’t confuse this with the Man Mo temple in Hong Kong (the famous one on Hollywood Road). The one on Tai Po is smaller, but also has hundreds of incense sticks and coils burning away – the air is heavy with smoke in this area. If you can’t find the temple on Fu Sin Street, just follow your nose!

The temple is jointly dedicated to the gods of literature and of war and it was built about 100 years ago by the Tsat Yeuk Community of Tai Po to mark the founding of Tai Wo Shi (Tai Wo Market Town). It was restored in 1985.
