If you are in Macau, please, do not miss to see this temple. We had a nice walking inside the territory of the temple, and both the building and the main hall were amazing.

I have been to a lot of temples since moving to Asia in August. I really enjoyed the variety of this temple. It was large in a way that is very different than other temples. I also loved the history of it. It is a little bit of a hike away from the other historical sites if you are walking,... More

Hi, my girlfriend and I (both 26, Male and Female, London/ Staines UK) are travelling over two weeks through Hong Kong and China. We visited the temple to see a site where Chinese religions meet. The only problem is if you don't know these religions you don't truly understand what you are looking at and little guidance from the 'monks/sales... More

There is not much to see this temple except it was built in 1488. You will smell the incense when you reach the temple gate. As I look at there no much to see inside the temple except you will pray. The surrounding of temple were a few shops selling the famous Portuguese tart and some traditional tarts and an... More

When we went in the evening, it was calm and peaceful. Nice, ancient feel. People were lighting bundles of joss-sticks and one had to keep out of the way ! People buy little totems from a shop there and write how much income they want to earn that year; they then hang these in a designated square in the temple... More

A fascinating and pungent place, especially if you haven't been to a Chinese temple before. You can take photos and wander around freely; just keep out of the way of worshippers and don't get in front of them whilst they're making offerings or praying.

A unique experience of the Buddhist worship, but this place is very crowded. The unique thing (or me, at least) was the bursting of crackers inside the temple premises as part of paying your obeisance! The courtyard around the temple is an amazing place to spend some time and getting clicked!

Nice old temple to visit when you are in Macau. There are souvenir shops beside the temple, selling delicious egg tarts.

Because Macau was a Portuguese colony for a very long time, some really old Chinese relics are still being preserved. The A-Ma Temple is one of them. The temple is located in a park-like plaza and various structures are located higher up the hill. It is necessary to climb up the stairs to see everything, but the view from the... More
