Hong Kong - To Do
 Man Mo Temple
located 280m from PMQ, a place for indie pop culture and local artist. 
The Man Mo Temple is a picturesque tribute to the God of Literature (Man) and the God of War (Mo), both of whom were worshipped by ambitious students looking to succeed in the civil examinations of Imperial China. These involved rigorous systems aimed at finding the best administrative officials for the state.
Built in 1847, this remains the largest Man Mo temple in Hong Kong. To pause for a moment’s respite under its giant hanging incense coils makes for a pleasant contrast with the hectic pace of the nearby financial district.

I kinda of went there cause of the largest temple, not realizing the largest Man Mo Temple. Its not as big as expected but really only three chambers, two of which are for worshiping and the other to pay respect to one's ancestors. Apart from the unique large incense coils for a photo opportunity, there's nothing much to this stop by place.
PMQ which houses local SME startups is locate a short 250m walk nearby and its definatly worth the visit
