Nothing extraordinary to write home about as a tourist spot. It's a temple and you visit just because.. :) It's set in some kind of rock formations, so will make for some good photo ops. Just an odd-fun spot, take it if you have the time, unless you have religious reasons, of course.

The thing which makes this temple special is that it is the oldest temple in Macau. This temple is small but authentic, with beautiful stone carving, hand-made.

Three temples are at lower level and are very ancient. In one them a huge brass bowl with handles has water in it and when you rub your palms on the handle due to friction you see ripples in the water due to vibration.

The temple is located at the far south of the main island and is accessible through public transport. It is a good attraction for tourist but the temple is really small.
