This is located by the harbor and about 20 min walk from Ruins of St. Paul. Nothing exciting here, it is a temple for worship. It is not too large or grand so nothing much to see other than a temple. It has its historical...More

It’s a beautiful ancient temple with more than 500 years history. It is among the UNESCO world heritage for a reason. We visited the place on Tomb Swiping Day and even then it was quiet and magical

Nice little Chinese temple besides the sea. You should go here and walk up the stairs to the little temples around.

A place of peace and tranquility. A must to be visited in Macau. You may also have your fortune told by the goddess A-Ma. Too bad our tour only gave us a few moments to explore it.

Didn’t change a bit since our last visit about 10 years ago. A very nice place to visit at sunset. It is right next to Maritime Museum and a famous cuisine A Lorcha.

The name of Macau come for the name of that temple ma. Chacters curved on stone walls and cents taller than my height as well as cents in coils are worth to observe. Washroom is also retroic. Nearby cooky bakery is a must to try...More

A great Temple in Macau along with many others. Located near the old fishing wharf. Busses are available as well as the shipping museum across the way.

I was actually a bit disappointed, there is a lot of hype about the temple. There are 4 small temples, 3 Taoist and 1 Buddhist

I’ve visited many temples and monasteries and not so many are accessible, so this is not much of a surprise. My low rating is because I went there with my wife to pay our respects to Mazu and Guanyin and she had to wait outside...More
