Uniquely Located Temple
Apr 2019 • Couples
Na Tcha Temple was built in 1888. The tiny temple was built adjacent to St. Paul's Ruins after the Church of Mater Del was destroyed by fire of 1835. A World Heritage and an example of Macau's multicultural identity and religious tolerance.

One of three temples included in Macau World Heritage
Feb 2019 • Solo
There are three temples that form part of Macau World Heritage including the small Na Tcha Temple just next to the Ruins of St. Paul's and the Old City Wall.

This is a small single room temple built upon this location in 1888. It is dedicated to the local folklore God of War called Na Tcha, a god that is unique to Macau. The temple is of traditional construction and includes a nice facade, large incense coils, altar with statues of deities and other interesting items of worship.

Before or after visiting the temple, you can walk through the hole in the Old City Wall, where you will find an exhibition room with interesting displays and wall art associated with the god Na Tcha and this small but interesting temple. The exhibition room is open from 10am to 6pm (closed on Wednesdays).

Child god of war
Nov 2018 • Couples
This temple was constructed in 1888 and dedicated to Na Tcha, the child god of war. It is a small, simple temple with a steady flow of Chinese who come to pray and burn incense. Not really worth making a special trip to see it, but if you are ate the ruins of St. Pauls you will find it by walking to the left of the temple, just at the rear.

Small Temple next to Ruins of St. Paul's
Apr 2018 • Solo
Na Tcha is a simple single chamber temple located next to the Old City Wall just next to the Ruins of St. Paul. It is part of Macau World Heritage and can be experience before or after your visit to the Ruins.

Constructed in 1888, this is actually one of Macau's youngest temples. It is dedicated to Na Tcha, a local folklore God of War unique to Macau.

Note that there is an exhibition room found right inside the Old City Wall space where you can see displays of traditional temple items of worship and other information. A brief stop here provide context to what you are seeing when visiting Na Tcha Temple.

A world away from the Ruins of St. Paul
Jan 2018 • Solo
Although Na Tcha Temple is located adjacent to the Ruins of St. Paul, only a handful of people actually make it here. This small Chinese temple is unassuming, yet feels intimate and peaceful. There is a small museum located adjacent to the temple which is so small it limits the number of visitors inside to 10 at a time. There is good signage describing the historical importance of this temple as well as the legend of Na Tcha. A video, some ancient relics and religious objects are on display.

Beautiful little temple by St Paul
May 2016 • Friends
While we were visiting St Paul, we saw that little adjacent temple. Getting closer, we realised how delightful it was. And we could feel the good vibes, as people are still praying there. Don't miss it then as it is nice from outside but also inside (see pictures). A very pleasant little surprise in our tour.

On the street beside the Ruins of St Pauls
Nov 2016 • Friends
On the street right beside the Ruins of St Paul's, lies a small temple called the Na Tcha Temple.

The Na Tcha Temple was built in homage to the child god of war. It is believed that it was built to put an end to the plague ravaging the region during that time

Small temple and museum
Jan 2017 • Family
Small temple and museum right beside the Ruins of St. Paul. Good for a quick stop and take a look at the local culture. Museum right behind is small as well.

Quick 15 min stop off
Jan 2017 • Couples
Right beside the St Paul ruins so worth a stop off. Lot of history and a tiny museum right beside. Lot of people probably miss this. It's on the left hand side of St. Paul's as you look at it from the front.
