A-Ma Temple


The A-Ma Temple existes before the establishment of the city of Macau. It is believed even that has given rise to attribute the name Macau, deriving from Chinese "A-Ma-Gau" which means "Bay of A-Ma."
People guess that although the original structure dating back to 1488, this current format comes from 1828, where you can find the Memorial Arch, the Gate Pavilion, the Hall of Guanyin, the Hall of Benevolence, the Pavilion of Prayers and the Pavilion of Buddhist Zhengjiao Chanlin. The pavilions are dedicated to the worship of different deities in a single complex, which makes the A-Ma Temple an exemplary representation of Chinese culture inspired by Confucianism, Taoism, Buddhism and multiple folk beliefs.
