If you time to visit only one temple to get a feel of the religious beliefs in Macau, then this is it.

This temple was really nice, and you felt free to walk inside, also as a tourist. You can see the temple, and walk around, and up and explore the small paths or sit and enjoy the atmosphere. We saw it on the way to the church on the hill (The Chapel of Our Lady Penha)

This is an unforgettable piece of the past, with modern skyscrapers almost everywhere we visit. The temple was visited by many and is still maintaining structures of the past.

We visited as part of a tour and spent only 30 mins there. Was good seeing locals and tourist Taoists pray. The scent candles are very strong so its good to watch out for your body reaction before going too high up. The temples could be better maintained considering the wealth of Macau.

I could not understand why this temple was so famous and must see in Macau. It is a small temple, very usual. Nothing grand except it has rocks with letters on it.

Great bakery just around the corner :) As for the temple itself, nice walk through. Built into the rocks. So you can walk up a fair bit and look around. Nice to view the mix of cultural places in Macau.
