Hong Kong is strange: there is very little trace of Chinese history in its walls. Man Mo temple is one of a handful of still operating temples in the city. It’s in a very quaint part of town: the old Chinese ghetto, in the process of rapid hipsterisation (art galleries, “artisanal” bakeries next to 90 y.o wash-the-dishes-in-the-street noodle canteens, lomography stores…).
It’s small, extremely busy, extremely smoky, and really cool. I’d need a full day to get pictures of this place, but here are my 15 minutes’ worth for now.
