This temple has always been a major destination for tourists visiting Macau. This temple was so full of history and a lot of special people pray for their families. Outside the temple atmosphere is very comfortable with overgrown various trees for shelter

A must visit. Small, built in to hillside. If busy it could be a bit hectic, but plenty seats in the shade to wait. A couple of guided trips were there when we left, but their guides were giving them the history by the seating area. My only criticism is there was no information for tourists not in tours ,as...

One of the stops in our tour package, the A-Ma temple is a local temple in Macau that is commonly seen in Asian cities. After walking around in the temple offering prayers if you like, try out the ice cream at the pushcart outside the temple. It's a nice treat especially on a hot summer day!

When the Portuguese first came to Ou Mun (Macau), they asked the folk here what was the name of this place, to which they answered: A-MA GAU (Temple of A-ma) from which the name of the place then sprung. If you are visiting Macau, this is an absolute must, it's a beautiful place and I reckon there are few places... More

This temple has more to offer. Small shopping area near and the local food and snack shop. Small but if you have time you can visit. Not a must must

A temple is a temple. But this one at least has the history of Macau resting on its back. It is also pretty need to see the boat carving in the rock, the two trees that grew together where people wish for a long and fruitful relationship with their loved one and how the temple was built into the rocks...
