Very peaceful atmosphere away from the hustle and bustle of city crowd and casinos. Provides with a touch of Chinese prayers and things used. A different and much needed experience in Macau

This temple dated back in 18th century has shown tenacity over time. The place is not as big as other temple but the tranquility and serenity in the place is good.
