Wshing Tree at Man Mo Temple Hong Kong - Man Mo Temple or Man Mo Miu is a temple in Hong Kong that reveres the God of Literature (man) and the God of War (Mo) both of whom were worshipped by ambitious students hoping to succeed in the civil examinations of Imperial China. Man Mo Temple was built in 1847 and to pause here beneath giant hanging incense coils is a pleasant contrast with the hectic pace of the nearby shopping and financial district. Kung Sor, built to the temple’s west, was an important assembly hall where community affairs and disputes were often discussed and settled.
