A lovely gift from the Portuguese when they handed over to the Chinese. Peaceful surroundings and interesting carvings

There wasn't much to see for us here and definitely a good place to take pictures. I love temples, so this was definitely a cool place to see.

Worth a visit. One of the oldest temple in Macau. Not very big but lots of little nooks and crannies to explore. Visit during Chinese New Year so lots of people. Great for photos

I love temples anyway, but especially ones with Chinese influence. This temple also had Portuguese influence. Lots of steps, and it isn't a big temple, but it was my favorite spot to visit in Macau.

Don't go inside if you ateist. Really sacred place, I guess with an old history. Stairs will lead you on the top. There is a chance to purchase candles and other religious things in front of the temple. After I left, I felt like eating a chinese ice-cream, that you can have close to the temple.

It was a great way to get some insight into the Chinese culture and tradition. I would really recommend you to make a trip here if you want to learn about Macao.
