A Blast from the past

If you want a piece of Macau's history, then this is the place to visit. Burning incense here is a way of paying homage and praying for good fortune.

We have visited the temple several times and we found the temple has been maintained in good shape even after over 500 years old! However, the surroundings are completely different every time when we visited! Fortunately, the temple has been well protected and I trusted the story can go on

This is an important piece of history for the Chinese in Macao. This is a very crowded place, so please be prepared for it. Lots of stairs climbing to see the whole temple.

A very old but beautifully built temple dedicated to goddess Ama. Within not a very large premises, it is a place to attain mental peace and harmony. With the sounds of bells ringing and the aroma of scented sticks, the enviornment is highly pure and asthetic. A must place for religious people.

A-Ma should be on your list when touring around Macau. Observe, say your prayers, just sit down or find a quiet corner.

This is a must visit temple. it shows the origin of Macau. A place to worship. The most interesting part of the temple is you will see that different variety and size of incense stick.
