Chinese Temple

A-Ma Temple is one of the Unesco Macau Heritage sites which worth a visit. I have been to Macau a couple of times and this was the first visit to A-Ma Temple.

My Macaunese friend told me about the history behind the name of Macau. The temple is religious and wild, next to a beautiful Portuguese restaurant gives such a harmonic contrast.

If you have time on hand, you can visit this place! It is well maintained and well laid out. But that;s it! Nothing extraordinary to see!

The religious side doesn't hold much interest for me, but my wife did find the Buddhist/Tao mix interesting. I did however find the architecture interesting... The various shrines and stairs are carved into the rock hillside. So, for a couple with different interests, this place ticked boxes for both of us. Quite easy to get to also. We walked from...

If you time to visit only one temple to get a feel of the religious beliefs in Macau, then this is it.

This temple was really nice, and you felt free to walk inside, also as a tourist. You can see the temple, and walk around, and up and explore the small paths or sit and enjoy the atmosphere. We saw it on the way to the church on the hill (The Chapel of Our Lady Penha)

This is an unforgettable piece of the past, with modern skyscrapers almost everywhere we visit. The temple was visited by many and is still maintaining structures of the past.

We visited as part of a tour and spent only 30 mins there. Was good seeing locals and tourist Taoists pray. The scent candles are very strong so its good to watch out for your body reaction before going too high up. The temples could be better maintained considering the wealth of Macau.

Interesting place...not really my thing but it's nice to walk around for about 20/ 30 min. We were there at noon and they had a gong ceremony ....the locals are very into this so that's good to see.
