Mui Wo Man Mo Temple at Pak Ngan Heung is said to have first built in the Wanli reign (1573 - 1620) of the Ming Dynasty and is the oldest temple in Mui Wo. Despite restoration projects completed in the 27th year of the Guangxu reign (1901) of the Qing Dynasty and in 1960, the structure of the Temple is retained.
Mui Wo Man Mo Temple enshrines the gods Man Cheong (God of Literature) and Kwan Tai (God of Martial Arts). Legend has it that Man Cheong, also known as “Wen Chang Celestial Lord” and “Wenquxing”, governs knowledge and studies and therefore many students and examination candidates pay homage to him. He is also a figure representing filial piety. Kwan Tai refers to Guan Yu (courtesy name Yunchang) who was a famous military general of the State of Shu during the Three Kingdoms period (220 – 280). He was reputed as "the enemy of ten thousand people", and is the paradigm of mightiness, loyalty and righteousness. Kwan Tai is widely glorified and worshipped for his wisdom, trustworthiness, benevolence, righteousness and courage.
