Interesting small temple to visit in Taipa
Feb 2020
I Leng Teng Temple (also known as Ka Sin Temple) is one of five temples that you can visit while exploring Taipa. It is located along Rua Direita Carlos Engenio and is dedicated to the Empress of Sacred Doctors.

Built around 1900 in the manner of temples from the Qing Dynasty, the exterior is traditional grey brick with Chinese characters surrounding the entrance and murals above. Within you will find a two chamber with open centre, allowing natural light into the interior. In the back, you'll find a shrine with the deity 'I Leng'. The shrine is framed by a delicately wooden carving that is really nice to see. There is a copper bell, leather drum, hanging incense and other traditional temple items as well.

In the end, a quick visit is well worth your time if you enjoy seeing historic Chinese temples during your travels.

Temple dedicated to the Empress of Sacred Doctors in Taipa
Mar 2019 • Solo
I Leng Teng (Ka Sin Temple) is one of three Chinese temples that can be found along Rua Direita Carlos Engenio in the village of Taipa.

This temple was built in 1900 and is dedicated to the Empress of Sacred Doctors, an idol you will find enshrined in the single inner hall of the temple building. The interior includes hanging coils, a historic bell and a few other items of intrigue. The facade is simple, grey brick with minor murals above the door.

Have a brief look if you are visiting the various temples include in the MGTO Bygone Days of Taipa Village heritage walk or if you enjoy seeing historic buildings during your travels.

Early 20th century temple in Taipa Village
Dec 2016 • Solo
I Leng Teng (also known locally as Ka Sin Temple) is one of the several small traditional Chinese temples that can be visited in Taipa Village. This one is located along Rua Direita Carlose Eugenio and is one of the inclusions of the MGTO sponsored - Bygone Days of Taipa Village heritage walking trail.

Built in 1900, I Leng Teng is dedicated to the God of Sacred Doctors. Architecturally, the temple is typical of others you will have seen around Macau from the period, being built of grey brick. The facade includes Chinese characters above the door as well as scenic mural below the roof.

Inside you will see a patio style chamber. Natural light filters in and lights up the room, where you see hanging incense coils and a shrine in back with a statue of the God 'I Leng'. Have a quick look at the cast bell on the right hand side of the chamber room as well.

In the end, you can have a quick look inside I Leng Teng Temple while exploring the streets of Taipa. It can be conveniently seen in just a few minutes before moving onward to see other attractions included on the Bygone Days of Taipa Village heritage trail.

Note: If you have limited time you may prefer to visit Pak Tai Temple on the other side of Taipa. It is a larger and more interesting temple to experience in this area of Macau.
