The Busiest Temple in Macau

21 04 2014

It certainly looked that way.  This oldest temple in Macau is very popular with tourists which at the time of my visit seemed mostly to be Chinese (and which Chinese for me is difficult to tell).  Coming from Japan, where people may like to visit temples, religion is not necessarily part of life to most, the seeming devotion to religion by which visitors at the A-Ma Temple were behaving was quite fascinating.

Beautiful photos; I was in Hong Kong and wanted to go to Macau but didn’t have the chance. Would like to get there eventually, your photos make me miss living abroad!

Thank you. I always thought Macau would be too small and uninteresting an area to visit and spend time but I was wrong! It’s actually great for a long weekend visit from where I am.

Super photos, especially the temple rooftops. I wonder if the religious devotion is a prerequisite to a visit to the casinos? Ken

You’re probably right! ^^ The Chinese definitely qualify as the people most concerned with all things money related and proud of it, too.
