This temple is still in use and very busy. It is a very beautiful temple and you can watch people praying.

Very interesting place to visit and explore. Small temple and you may have to climb a bit but worth seeing all the iconic Chinese deities. When I was there, there was a Taoist priest that could bless your souvenirs.

Known to safeguard fisherman’s well being, this small yet very beautiful temple is an important religious spot in Macau and attracts hundreds of devotees on any given day. Temple is hundreds of yrs old and has very positive and peaceful vibe.
