Interesting visit to A-Ma temple

It was an easy taxi ride over to the historic center to see this beautiful temple. There are lots of stairs!

An old chinese temple of ma zhu, goddess of mercy and other deities. Being Taoist, I made the trip here for a simple prayer and offering. The temple architecture itself is simple, nothing spectacular. There is a small section of the temple where tourist try their "luck" by rubbing the handles of a brass bowl that is filled with water.... More

This temple is small and not anything special in itself. Compared to other temples I have seen you would not miss much if you did not go. I decided to go as I knew it was very important to the history of Macau and it is located near the Mandarin's House which I knew was a must-see. It is small... More

See it all. Tao temple on several layers, climb the hill for views. Incense, worship, respect & families. Lovers come to put up red items. Visit the waters edge for the portugese cobble stones & steps of the original portugese port area. Great square for meeting others with coffee shops, seats & shady trees. Have an ice cream (outside the... More

after lunch at A Lorcha walk round the corner to A-Ma temple and the maritime museum, The shady cobbled park outside the temple provides respite from the heat of the mid day sun, the temple itself is a haven of peace and burning incense. Do go.

Its a holy temple.. and Macau name derived from this temple it self. Mostly Chinese people comes here.. for history of this temple it is written there. This place is looks very old but must visit place in Macau. In temple you can see round shape and few other shape incense sticks..

I won't call this a must-see attraction but would encourage you to do so if you have NEVER experienced traditional chinese religious culture. There are a number of small temples that make up this well-preserved place. You'll probably finish the tour in less than 20 minutes.

Macau is interesting irrespective where you may travel. Don't always be the ugly American but when using public transportation, forge to the front to get off. If you try to be courteous you'll never make it. Whatever your likes, Macau seems to be able to satisfy your desires. Don't shy away from the casinos, aside from their main purpose, the... More

A nice temple all and all but not something I would step out of my way to see, it's a complex of small temples, very local and if you are coming from HK go to the temples over there, if you are on a day trip from HK it's not in the center of town and we had troubles to... More
