We were part of a tour and this was a fabulous place to stop. Fascinating to see the old temple still in service. Beautiful spot by the water, great photo opportunity of China across the water.

It is a bit faraway from historical city centre, but you can walk to it. The good thing is that it is quiet and demonstrate spirituality, nevertheless, the temple itself is not so impressive

The Buddhist temple is 500 years old and is still used by Practising Buddhists. Worth a visit and make sure you go in and look around.

A good peaceful old temple, away from hustle and bustle of casinos. Nice picture opportunities if you are into photography.

I would not recommend this place to a person who has no belief in Chinese gods. Architecture is not great to watch and its only about belief that can take u here.

Thinking it was just a simple temple visit but after listening to the temple history, you will learn why it is a UNESCO heritage site.

This is one of the highlights in Macau! Pretty temple next to the ocean. They burn a lot of incenses here and they have some huge ones inside. If you come here early you’ll beat the crowds.

Late afternoon is a good time to visit this temple. It’s made up of many little shrines with a main hall, and is situated on many levels, with many huge boulders that make part of the setting. One can wander around at leisure, and marvel...More
