Kun Iam Temple, Macau

4.3
#20 of 45 in Historic Sites in Macau
Religious Site Tourist Spot
Founded in the 13th Century, Kun Iam Temple is the city’s oldest temple. Lavish porcelain figurines adorn the roof, and other decorations embellish the indoor halls. The two statues inside the main hall represent the eponymous Kun Iam, the Goddess of Mercy, and purportedly Marco Polo, who studied Buddhism in this temple. History buffs won't want to leave without seeing the stone on which the Sino-American treaty was signed in July 1844--marking a significant agreement between two of the world’s economic superpowers. Plan your visit to Kun Iam Temple and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Macau vacation trip planner.

  • Away from the madness at the casino, but the front entrance was crowded with people (not connected with the temple) asking for money. Within walking distance of Guia Hill if you're in that area.  more »
  • This temple is the oldest temple of Macau has big size measurement. Both buildings and walkways, but construction is beautifully. Now it stands several sections.

  • An interesting Buddhist temple dedicated to the god of mercy. Next to it there is a very nice small garden. It is located near the Lou Lim Ioc Garden.  more »

Where to stay in Macau

Cotai Strip in Macau offers luxury hotels, with famous names providing rooms looking out over the harbor and down into the historical center. Establishments in this area also feature onsite entertainment options and Vegas-style casinos. Look for more affordable options north of Nam Van Lake, where chain and boutique hotels provide rooms with views of the city, the harbor, and across to China proper. Head farther north for lower rates offered by hostels and apartment rentals.
