Located just to the side of the main ruins of St Pauls is the Na TCHA Temple. It is lovely quiet spot, loads of burning incense to add to the atmosphere and lots of information for those wanting to understand the history.

When we visited the ruins of St Paul, we noticed a small temple beside it which piqued our interest. The temple was built during the years a plague ravaged the city. We walked around to the temple then went to the small museum beside it. This is a fascinating area with beautiful views of old and new Macau if you... More

There is simple explanation and exhibition on history of Na Tcha somewhere at the back of the temple. There are just so so near to each others: Na Tcha temple, Ruins of St Paul, 恋爱巷,Old City Wall !! You might have missed Old City Wall and Na Tcha temple if you aren't observant. Lol

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.
