Dating back to 1847, Man Mo temple is one of the oldest and prestigious temples in Hong Kong. Though it has undergone several renovations from 1985, its original appearance and essence have been preserved and was deservedly declared a monument in 2010. The temple is a picturesque tribute to the God of Literature (Man) and the God of War (Mo). In the past, students looking to succeed in the civil examinations of Imperial China would come and pay their tributes. The temple was also once a place for the community to settle disputes. To avoid going to court, people would invoke the gods to punish those who do not perform the vows that they publicly make in the ceremony. Nowadays, it is appreciated as a stellar example of traditional Chinese architecture and craftsmanship, beautifully decorated with ceramic figurines, granite, wood carvings, plaster mouldings and murals.
