About A-Ma Temple

A-Ma Temple, also called Ma Kok Miu, is one of Macau’s most famous, and oldest, monuments, having been built in 1488. It was constructed on the cliff of a mountain, located in the southeastern part of the Macau Peninsula. The entrance to the temple is guarded by a pair of exquisitely carved realistic stone lions. The temple is an ancient building with classic Chinese cultural characteristics, a towering construct of ancient wood. The thick scent of incense wafts out of A-Ma Temple from the many burning cones, and can be found burning all year round. The temple is a popular destination to visit during Spring Festival and Mazu Bao’s birthday.

    The Mage Temple is a must-see attraction in Macau, and sometimes it is the starting point of the rampage on the Macau Peninsula. Many buses go to Mage Temple. It is said that the Mage Temple has a history of more than 500 years. It was built in memory of Mazu. Mazu especially blessed those who worked at sea, so there are many worshippers of Mazu in Macao. Mazu Temple is divided into many halls, each hall is on a layer of hill, so keep climbing, carefully look at the time-consuming, I played for nearly two hours.

    It's the Gulf Restaurant that you have to go to Macau. The authentic Portuguese cuisine knows from his business hours that he does not do tourist business. Visitors to the Mazu Temple, which opens at 6 p.m. every night, have long since faded away and must be eating for his food. Michelin does not recommend low-key service to serious diners. Red wine stewed beef tail and pasta with meat sauce are recommended.

    Located in the southwest of the Macao Peninsula, the Mage Temple is built along the coast, with a hillside facing the sea and a Shishi Town Gate. It is one of the three major Zen temples in Macao. Looking down at Mazu Pavilion from a low altitude, we can see that it stands quietly in the green embrace, facing the sea, like the flowering crabapple, beautiful and moving.

Mazu Pavilion, formerly known as Mazu Pavilion, is commonly known as Tianhou Temple in southeastern Macau. It was built in 1488 and coincides with the Ming Dynasty. Back to the mountains and sea, along the cliffs, ancient trees towering, beautiful scenery. So to visit all temples is to climb a hill. In order to show our sincerity, we did it and climbed a hill with breakfast or food. The Mage Temple, together with the front of the Mage Temple, is listed on the World Heritage List.

    In the few tourist attractions in Macao, there are many buses coming directly. The tickets are cheap. The license plate can be clearly displayed on the stop plate, and the change can be prepared in advance. Every time Mazu Temple goes to Macau, it has a sense of historical vicissitudes in the mottled rubble and walls. The incense is still quite strong. The Washington biscuit ice-cream at the entrance is worth a try, 10 Australian dollars.

    Mazu Pavilion, after coming, I was disappointed to hear that Mazu statue was burned down. I don't know if I went to the wrong place. I didn't see any special beautiful scenery. Mazu Culture Village is probably better, but time does not allow us to change places. So I suggest that tourists do not waste time to come here, worship can walk!?

    No tickets, just go in, because there was a fire before the temple, so there are some places sealed up for repair. The whole Mazu Temple is on a hill. The scenery is really beautiful. The next street is directly to the church and the old city. It feels really good to walk while enjoying the scenery of Macau. There's also a maritime museum worth visiting.^

    Mazu Pavilion is very popular. Mazu Pavilion, built along hills, has a history of 500 years. Mazu Pavilion is the starting point for the integration of Chinese and Portuguese culture in Macau. It is the oldest historic monument among the three ancient temples in Macau (Mage Temple, Guanyin Hall, Lianfeng Temple). It is an ancient building with Chinese cultural characteristics. To visit all temples is equivalent to climbing a hill. In order to show our sincerity, we did it and climbed a hill with breakfast or food. The Mage Temple, together with the front of the Mage Temple, is listed on the World Heritage List. These towering trees are the best testimony of history!!

    Mazu temple was originally called Mazu temple. Mazu could pray for calm sea surface and bless those who went out in heavy rain to return home safely and safely. At first, I thought it would be a big courtyard. When I saw the mountains and the sea, many good men and women came here to pray for peace.
