Most of the temple is on the rock face and besides... More

It is on the way to Sanedo square, so one can break journey and visit this temple. Chinese visit this temple on all days of the week, therefore vibrant in all seasons.

We arrived just after Chinese new year. Probably not the best time to go as it was very busy. It was an interesting place to visit. Nice cake shop 100m from the entrance to the temple which was a nice bonus.

Very old and historical temple besides the sea. Nowadays since Chinese New Year a lot of small stall selling new year things in front of the temple. The temple have few stage and need to climb. I like this old temple very much.

the A-MA temple was peaceful, even with all the folks in and around the temple. The temple had many people, some tourists like us, and quite a few locals, offering their prayers and lighting incense. We got some beautiful pictures of the temple. I would say its another 10 to 20 minute stop.

It is a religious place with historical value. It's very popular place to visit by all tourists. People with faith in all Gods must visit.

My Macaunese friend told me about the history behind the name of Macau. The temple is religious and wild, next to a beautiful Portuguese restaurant gives such a harmonic contrast.
