We wandered into the Sam Kai Vui Temple and it has a great little history. I appreciated its location the most because it just kind of pops up in the city center. Worth a quick stop.

Sam Kai Vui Kun is a small but historic Chinese temple located in the old Chinese Bazaar on Rua Sul do Mercado. It is a quiet and neat place to find for those exploring the World Heritage attractions around Senado Square. The present temple was built in the 18th century. It was historically used as a meeting place for local Chinese business representatives. While small, visitors will see various elements of traditional Chinese architecture including grey brick exterior, ornamental friezes, decorative plaster, a tiny interior courtyard with shrines, incense coils and items of worship. A quick 5-10 minute visit can give you a good feel for Sam Kai Vui Kun Temple. It is a nice change of scenery from the predominately Portuguese style buildings and attractions that fill Senado Square.

OK, this is not the gorgeous "Golden Temple," but it has a 200 year history as first a meeting place for Macau merchants, then a temple. And it has a quiet, spiritual feel. We stumbled upon it by accident and I had a chance for some much-needed prayer and meditation. Try to stop in if you are near the Historic Square and reflect--and give them a few bucks: Macau's historic character deserves support against the onslaught of developers.

In olden days, this temple also known as Kuan Tai Temple, was a meeting place for Business people and they worshipped the deity Kuan Tai. Today, it is just a small temple in a lane nearby Senedo Square. By looking at the temple, no one can imagine its existence and value in the past. Other than just to know about this temple and its history, there is nothing to see here. It would just take a few minutes to cover this attraction if you are around Senado Square.

The Sam Kai Vui Kun (Kuan Tai Temple) is the sixth attraction on the Macau Government Tourist Office (MGTO) sponsored self-walking tour called 'Footsteps in the Historic Centre' and the first of the traditional Chinese historic buildings that you will see on this trail. The 'Footsteps in the Historic Centre' walk starts at Avenida da Praia Grande before making way north on Ave. Almeida Ribeiro, calling on Leal Senado Building and several attractions at the famous Senado Square in Macau, including the small but interesting Sam Kai Vui Kun Temple. With historical roots dating back to the time of Emperor Qianlong during the Qing Dynasty, this small temple has been a place of worship and venue for local business administrators and representatives for several centuries. The present building likely dates back to the mid 18th century. Architecturally, the temple is typical of those built during the late Qing dynasty, featuring grey brick exterior, decorative plaster above the entrance. Inside, there is a tiny courtyard with shrines, incense coils and items of worship. Note: You can find Sam Kai Vui Kun Temple in the area referred to as the Chinese bazaar, a small street market just beside the MGTO office at Senado Square just 20-30 metres down Rua Sul do Mercado. Allow 5-15 minutes to browse and photograph the temple, which is open from 9am to 6pm daily. Note: Visit the MGTO website for more information regarding the attractions featured in the 'Footsteps of the Historic Centre' self-guided walking tour, others attractions located in the area of Senado Square as well as other interesting Chinese temples you can visit in the area. Note: Other stops to make on the MGTO 'Footsteps of the Historic Centre' route include Avenida da Praia Grande, several attractions at Senado Square; including Leal Senado, The Old Post Office and St. Dominic's Church. You then proceed to the Traditional Pawn Shop Museum, Tung Sin Tong Clinic building, Carpentry Guildhall, Rua de Camilo Pessanha, Rua da Felicidade, the Cheng Peng Theatre, Rua da Caldeira, followed by Praca de Ponte e Horte and inner harbour.
