    Gloriously atmospheric!

    The Temple was excellent last year. We had got here early in the morning and it had been an oasis of Zen calm. It was very soothing and spiritual for my frazzled nerves at the time. Time to light some...

Additional Information

Introduction

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.
