The thing which makes this temple special is that it is the oldest temple in Macau. This temple is small but authentic, with beautiful stone carving, hand-made. The shoreline has now moved due to reclaiming but you still sense that it as a coastal shrine built by fishermen and sailors. Hard to get here without a car. You can take... More

Three temples are at lower level and are very ancient. In one them a huge brass bowl with handles has water in it and when you rub your palms on the handle due to friction you see ripples in the water due to vibration.

The temple is located at the far south of the main island and is accessible through public transport. It is a good attraction for tourist but the temple is really small.

A Landmark Temple of Macau visited by a lot of tourists and in the tourist map of macau. Has 2 Lion Dragons at the entrance which it seems fulfill the wishes of the devotees. Has a bowl of water inside the temple which it seems will give a lot of money as per the intensity of the bubbles when rubbed.
