This may be the oldest temple if Macau. The approach is well maintained and is easily accessible. Main temple and surroundings are good should visit early morning to avoid rush. Looks good during Rain and was not very busy.

I think it's the oldest temple in Macao. It is far from the main hotels and the easiest way to reach it is by taxi.

Bustling, atmospheric temple. People were making paper sculptures and burning them in small fireplaces while praying. Very interesting to watch, though it made certain sections of the temple smokey. There are several levels which require climbing some steep stairs. It is one of the World Heritage Sites in Macau.

Made the effort to visit this temple as it's so famous in Macao. Disappointing, in my view as very small and insignificant, excuse my ignorance.

Nice historic temple built into the side of the hill, so lots of steps, Mostly outside with several altars, lots of incense burning.

This temple is to worship the sea Goddess as Macau was formerly a fishing village. There are cones around the temple which are actually burning incense for a seven day period which is how long the fishing trips would take. Part of the temple was reconstructed after a fire. There is an excellent Portuguese Tart bakery nearby.

I would not make a special trip to go and see it. It is not being well taken care of and in bad shape.

Very small and doesn't take long to walk around. However the temple is made to be part of the surrounding rocks and nature and is beautiful in that aspect.
