the incense temple
The gods Man (literature) and Mo (of war) are the masters of this humble but iconic Hong Kong temple. The interior of the temple is divided into three rooms with red and blue roofs and filled with hanging incense coils that are burning at all times. The atmosphere is a bit stuffy and the smell of incense permeates everything (even your clothes will smell like incense after). It is located west of Central and can be reached from the Metro stop Sheung Wan, after a short walk through a very lively and always busy neighborhood. It is also a good option to visit as well as the famous escalators.
