Nice view, you can walk up hill or u can ride a cab, or bus. It was a huge place to enjoy to sit and check how chinise people do prayer. Try to light a insense stick. Go up for the Buddha.

Nestled at the tip of the da Barra area of Macau which can be easily reached by bus or taxi. You will go back in time where you will get to experience of an old world temple and enjoy the many sights.

Arriving earlier in the day could possibly mean that you miss the crowds that can come from tour groups stopping here. This is an interesting temple. I loved the stones carved with script on them! Visit Macau for its culture, not just it's casinos!

The remnant of the Cathedral ( Church of Saint Paul?) may be the featured logo, the the A-ma Temple actually defines Macau. This is a place one needs to visit unless you are going there for religious reasons. Do understand that the place is usually crowded and may not be good for those with lung disease due to the incense... More

Because of tour groups, this can be crowded, but is nonetheless interesting. The local people are actively using this as a house of worship, so I'd ask you to maintain a certain degree of reverence and respect that the worshipers deserve a peaceful environment. They are not there to be models in your photos, nor are they there to get... More

WE were told that approximately four hundred years ago the Portuguese landed on a sea promontory near this temple. They asked the local inhabitants the name of the land, but the locals misunderstood, thinking that the Portuguese were asking for the name of the temple. So they answered 'Ma Ge'. Later, the Portuguese translated the name into 'Macau' and used... More

Nothing extraordinary to write home about as a tourist spot. It's a temple and you visit just because.. :) It's set in some kind of rock formations, so will make for some good photo ops. Just an odd-fun spot, take it if you have the time, unless you have religious reasons, of course.

As an indian nothing fascinated me about this temple since we have been to more older andgreater temples in India.Local people have lots of faith in this temple and hence you can find many localites coming here to seek blessings.
