photoblog image HK Day3: Man Mo Temple

HK Day3: Man Mo Temple

Man Mo Temple is dedicated to the God of literature, Man and the martial god, Mo. Built in 1847, it is a complex of three buildings - one housing the shrine, the other with a small office for community affairs and the third storing, presumably, ashes of the departed. Apart from the prayer altars, what I found striking was a central, open courtyard that had giant hanging helical incense sticks. The afternoon sun made a pleasant interplay in the rising smoke, among all the lanterns.

The smoke adds atmosphere to the picture Ayush
Good art shot...
To a British eye these are very unusual.
Man and Mo have a wonderful atmosphere.

I like how you have captured the smoke especially. Before I saw the smoking end, I thought at first that there were copper spirals.
That is so nice.
