Man Mo Temple, Sheung Wan

Located at 124-126 Hollywood Road, Sheung Wan. The Man Mo Temple was graded as a Grade I historic building in 1993 and it is now a declared monument.

The Man Mo Temple Compound on Hollywood Road, Sheung Wan comprising three blocks, namely Man Mo Temple, Lit Shing Kung and Kung Sor, was built approximately between 1847 and 1862 by wealthy Chinese merchants. The three blocks are separated by two alleys.

The Man Mo Temple, the main building of the complex, is dedicated to the civil god Man Cheong and the martial god Kwan Tai. Lit Shing Kung is for the worship of all heavenly gods. Kung So, to its west, was an assembly hall where community affairs and disputes were settled.

The magnificent Man Mo Temple Compound is a fine example of traditional Chinese vernacular architecture. It is exquisitely decorated with ceramic figurines, granite carvings, wood carvings, plaster mouldings and murals, reflecting superb traditional craftsmanship.
