This temple is a little out of the centre and worth a visit. It is dark, but spacious and has some nice statues. The temple is pretty well kept and has a fresh atmosphere due to the open courtyard in the middle. If you are near to the Red Market, you can easily pop over to the Kun Iam Temple... More

This temple is often neglected by many people who are visiting Macau for the more famous A-Ma Temple. This is not heavily promoted but frankly speaking, this was one of my favorite tourist attractions. It's so serene, peaceful, atmospheric and there's a quite a bit to see. Highly recommended!

Very historical. Once you walk in, a sense of calmness prevails. A bit smokey though due to the incense burning.

We visited Kun Iam Temple (not Kun Iam Statue) during our trip to Macau last week. This was the first time we had visited this temple on Avenida do Coronel Mesquita, at the end of Avenida do Conselheiro Ferreira de Almeidia. We found this old temple to be very interesting. There are nine or ten worship rooms that you can... More

Kun Iam Temple is not as famous as A-ma Temple, for example; but it is very nice, at least in my opinion. I was going there a lot actually, because I use to live near by. It is big, and I love the stactues there. It also smells like incense all the time, and I love the atmosphere. Just stop... More
