The temple was old but pretty. It was overrun by incense which... More

The temple was really interesting but there are no interpretive boards or information to tell you what you are seeing and no-one to ask. Enjoy the climb up and the views, if its a clear day

The A-Ma Temple is a gorgeous temple near the wharf in Macau. It is very charming with staircases running across different levels. It has an aura of mystery as well with beautifully constructed spires of incense sticks. It's definitely worth a visit if you're in Macau.

The temple is located on a small hill. Since it was Christmas Season...plenty of tourists flocked this area. Bakeries are beside this temple in case you get hungry... Enjoy!!!
