  • The Lin Fung Mui (Lin Fung Temple) was built in 1592 and can be found at the north end of Mong Ha Hill on Avenida do Almirante Lacerda. It is more commonly referred to as the Temple of Lotus and is one of the three most famous temples in Macau, behind the A-Ma Temple (Barra Square) and Kun Iam Temple (Avenida do Coronel Mesquita). The Lin Fung Mui has been restored numerous times over the centuries, most significantly during the Qing Dynasty for which it takes is current size and architecture. In front of the temple there are impressive incense altars as well as a statue to the famed visitor Commissioner Lin Zexu, who stayed here on official business in Macau in 1839. The front facade of the temple is attractive, featuring decorative facade reliefs as well as traditional stone lions guarding the entrances into the cluster of halls. Within the interlinking halls, you will find alter shrines to the likes of Kun Iam and Kwan Tai, decorative walls with reliefs, burning incense coils, intricate wood carvings. In the end, we enjoy visiting Lin Fung Mui from time to time. Unfortunately, it is located a fair distance away from the Historic City Centre of Macau so you have to make an effort to find and visit this temple. Buses 1A, 8, 8A, 10, 28B, 28BX, N1B pass this direction for those interested. Hint: If you are specifically targeting temple visits while in Macau, this is definitely one to see. We would recommend it just after the UNESCO World Heritage - A Ma Temple. You can visit along with Kun Iam Temple, which is only 10 minutes walk from here.
  • This is a traditional Mazu temple in Macau. There is a museum attached.
