A-Ma Temple, Macao: 23 reviews and 49 photos


The A-Ma temple is the oldest Chinese temple in Macau. Some parts of the temple date back over 600 years. There is a legend which says that a poor girl miraculously saved a ship from a vicious storm, and this is where the ship landed. A temple was then built in her honour. The girl mysteriously disappeared only to reappear at the temple as A-Ma, the Goddess of the Sea and Queen of Heaven.

Beautiful tiled roofs and spectacular views from the upper gardens.
