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.

It is one of the famous attractions in Macau. Usually this temple is included in tours. It is quite an interesting part of the history of Macau. In most days this temple is usually crowded with lots of locals praying and tourist taking pictures. If you have time, it is one of the interesting place to visit in Macau.

It requires no more than 15 minutes and was good to visit. There is also a wishing tree, where you can purchase it for 38 $, make a wish and tie it. Decent to experience some culture.

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.
