This is a very old temple in Macau. You may visit if you have time but you may skip also. There are some souvenir shops where you may get something at reasonable rates.

This is a lovely temple a bit out-of-the way. The easiest way to get to it is to grab either a bus or a taxi -- it's a bit of schlep to walk there from the historical center of Macau (the same applies to getting back to the center and/or the casinos). ... aaaand there's not a particularly obvious place...

if you come to Macau , you must visit here . It's not a big temple but it's oldest in Macau !!! There're engraved rocks that present inscriptions of poems about the history and culture of Macau.

There is a short cut to walk from Senado Square to A-Ma Temple. It is not far but I did not know and walk towards Grand Lisboa and take a longer walk along the side facing the Macau Tower. I took a return walk and found myself at Ruins of St Paul's cathedral and Senado Square. The short cut route... More

Yes Macau full of churches but, there are temples also. A-Ma temple is a good place to start. The location is very easy to access since many buses from different route pass by.

The temple was busy with people praying and incense. On a Sunday mid-morning, it was a little bit too crowded for my preference. Look for the sailing ship picture on the large stone and for some of the older parts of the temple. It build on the side of a hill, so you'll climb steps to the different areas. Lots... More

I went to the temple, can't resist, so went in to pray, very cheap for insense, cheaper than most temple charge in the mainland. Great food around the temple, had eggtart and ice cream, very tasty. A must visit.
