Foto Friday – Man Ma Temple, (Sheung Wan), Hong Kong

Man Mo Temple, (Sheung Wan)

Huge incense coils hanging from the ceiling of the Man Po Temple one of Hong Kong’s oldest and most important places of worship. Photography is really forbidden within the temple but by showing some respect to the temple attendant and making a small donation to the temple’s funds via the tin piggy bank a quick shot can be grabbed.

It has to be quick in any case because the burnt incense has a bad habit of falling directly on your head as you wander beneath the myriad of prayer coils hanging from the ceiling, some may say it’s divine intervention in response to your flagrant disobedience of the house rules!
