Constructed in the year of 1488 during the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644), the A-Ma Temple is the oldest temple in Macao to commemorate Mazu, the sacred sea goddess who blesses the fishermen and seafarers of the city.

The temple was built by the cliffs. With winding paths around and up the hill, it offers silence and spectacular views.

Containing a series of classical Chinese architectural treasures, the temple became one of the designated sites of the 'Historic Centre of Macao' inscribed on UNESCO World Heritage List, in 2005.
