The oldest temple in Macau and built on a rock. It was a wonderful visit and to learn about its history was great. We had the chance to walk through the moon door and see people praying and giving offers to the Gods which always amazes me to see how devoted they are.

One of the must to visit places if you come to Macau not just to gamble in casino. Old beautiful temple - very much worth spending some 30-40 minutes to see part of what Macau was once.

My husband ,kids 14 & 25 ) & I enjoyed the temple . I do not recommend for kids younger than 8-10 . There are a lot of steps and different levels with no fencing .

A living and working temple that is the oldest structure in Macau which makes it well worth a visit. Locals don't seem to mind the tourists but be sensitive to the worshippers. Lots of little nooks with shrines and inscriptions. Walk up the hill for a more quieter experience. Avoid if you don't like incense!

It took 15-30mins to visit but a story behind it, it's very old temple and gets World Heritage rate. How to get there: catch a bus (2, 5, 7, 10, 18, 21) from Ferry terminal. From the temple, you can walk along smal road, following the green signs to other attractions becuse this is Worl Heritage area.

Reasonably big temple. It has a story behind this. It is near Macau Tower. OK for visiting once. Local people have strong faith. On the new year night nearly a lakh people assemble here

Small temple, at a slow pace you will be done in 10-15 minutes. Nothing really spectacular about this place but I guess it is part,of the Macau experience.

I guess the visit to the A-Ma Temple is part of the itinerary of every travel and tour package. I appreciate the fact that outsiders and believers of other faiths are welcome to enter the temple and get a first hand feel of how it is.
