It only happens in Macau! A church besides A temple! It is a East meets West cultural place. This tiny place is right next to Ruins of St Paul. This temple is for Na Tcha. Na Tcha is famous for the bravery. The temple recently catches a fire and it has been rennovated.

If you have already made the effort to climb the huge number of steps to see the Ruins of St. Paul up close, I will encourage you to step to the left of the ruins to visit this quiet and well-maintained temple that's dedicated to the deity, Na Tcha (God Child of War). Step into the courtyard of the temple... More

I wouldn't make a special trip just to see this but if you're in the area to see the ruins, you may as well step around the corner and have a look.

The Na Tcha Temple rests at the side of the Ruins of St. Paul, back behind the facade. Its located next to the remains of the Old City Wall, both of which form part of the Macau World Heritage collection. Na Tcha Temple was build in 1888, making it one of Macau's younger temples. It is an interesting temple, dedicated... More

It is around the area of St Paul Ruins. The place is old and tranquil. You can see and feel the vibe Macau's history and religion.

Visited this functioning tiny temple as part of our day trip to Macau, located in the adjacent end corner just outside the St. Paul's Church ruins. Also located next to the temple is a portion of the Old City Walls. The Na Tcha temple along with the old city walls is listed as UNESCO heritage site. Fine to stop briefly... More

Nothing much to see or appreciate. Just visit to know the history about Na Tcha and to see the ruins. Located just behind the St Paul's ruins

Look, if you're in Macau, you will visit St Paul's ruins. The temple is right there, don't miss it. Go to the top of the steps, turn left and you will see a tiny, lovely, well-kept temple that is a joy to photograph. It is a functioning temple with folks paying their respects and it's wonderful to sit across it... More

You just need to go to the left of the ruins as you are coming up on them. Easy to stop over and check it out. It will only take a few minutes, but consider all of the different contrasts. This whole historical area is lots of places to see in less than 30 minutes. This is one of the... More

This temple is very nice and quite unique. It is very small and will only take about two minutes to view. Next to it is the old city wall and a small museum about the temple. For a free distraction form the crowds at St. Paul's, it's worth a look.
