Kun Iam Temple dates back to the 13th century and is one of the three famous temples in Macau. The present temple building was constructed in 1627 and is the traditional Qing Dynasty architecture. In addition to the traditional temple facade, nicely decorated halls and shrines, statues and historic artefacts like the important 300 year old brass bell found in... More

At my time of visit, I think we were the only tourists there, prob cuz it's further out than the other attractions. The rest were devotees armed with incense stick & joss paper making their prayers. The temple is beautiful, if a bit worn, with intricately detailed arches and roofs. The temple is bigger than it looks. Walk down the... More

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!

The Kun Lam Temple unfortunately for me I've been there too late at the closing times, having showed up myself after the 8 pm I found the entrance blocked by a chain and a surveillance officer before. Being located at the end of a long pier there are not other roads to access directly and as a result I had... More

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
