Kun Iam Temple, Macau
(4.2/5 based on 25+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • 雖然正名普濟禪院比較小聽見,但它的別名觀音堂就非常出名,亦是全澳最古老之寺廟其中一間,每日都香火鼎盛,由以觀音節日更是楔不通 
  • Kun Iam Temple is the first stop on the Macau Government Tourist Office (MGTO) sponsored 'An Experiment of Creativity' self-walking tour, which covers a handful of attractions around the St. Lazarus D...  more »
  • 這個廟挺大,可是香火都很多的,門口挺大的,它是澳門的遺產之一。地點不錯,很多旅客。本地人去拜拜保平安都很多。

  • 引用同宗原文:觀音堂又稱普濟禪院,是澳門三大禪院中規模宏大、歷史悠久、佔地廣闊、建築雄偉的一家。建於明朝末年,距今約三百六十多年,廟貌巍峨,深入三進,橫連幾座,以中國古翬飛式的佛教建築,具中國名山古剎的特色,禪院的首座是大雄寶殿,次殿是長壽佛殿,後座正殿是觀音殿。院後還有廣闊幽深的後花園,是二座頗具規模,港澳罕有的佛寺建築群。   由一系列有規則形狀的廳堂組成,廳堂之間有多個前廳,內庭院及露天的走廊相連。此廟到處充滿美麗的裝飾,有壁畫和色彩繽紛的硫璃瓦併合成的門窗框,及繪述神話形象和佛教傳說重要片斷的浮雕。    大雄寶殿正對禪院,莊嚴宏偉,供奉三尊三寶佛像,皆為丈八金身,魁梧雄偉,其中之一為佛祖釋迦牟尼;殿旁懸有二個銅鐘,古色斑駁,已有三個半世紀的歷史。殿頂的簷頭瓦脊,鑲有明朝琉璃瓦及精工鑲嵌的石灣公仔,栩栩如生,維肖維妙。次殿是長壽佛殿,供奉長壽佛,佛像安詳,象徵佛陀普渡眾生精神。    進入主殿觀音殿,供奉觀音大士蓮台,樟木雕塑,十八羅漢分列主殿兩旁,雕工精細,造型神態活現,其中位於左面的一尊羅漢,眼睛浮突、鼻骨高隆、鬢髮捲曲,極像外國人,據云就是意大利威尼斯人馬可字羅,他曾在中國研習佛理。    禪院內進的前廳掛有一幅畫像,人稱「大笑佛」。無論從那個方向欣賞畫像,佛相均咧咀相視而笑。禪院內收藏了很多名家的書畫、書法、文物,包括馳譽中外畫壇的嶺南派大師高劍父及乃徒關山月,有嶺南三大詩家之稱的陳恭尹,著名學者章太炎等人,他們的作品懸掛於殿堂,供遊客欣賞。在院內僧舍客堂屏壁,雕花金飾,而書法雕刻,亦見清雅。兩度屏風,每度刻四屏條,收米芾、董其昌、劉墉等歷代名人手跡,刻工精細。   步入後花園,有一花岡石桌和四條長石凳,就是簽訂中美不平等條約──「望廈條約」的地方。1884年,清政府國勢日衰,列強覬覦,美國以顧盛為代表,與清欽差大臣耆英於澳門簽署「望廈條約」,強迫中國開放通商港口,擴大美領事裁判權。1994年,禪院於石桌後方立一亭碑,記述此事。   在後山花園中的連理樹,是一棵有數百年樹齡的高大連理樹。樹的莖部四株相連,造型頗似長頸鹿。 觀音堂又稱普濟禪院,是澳門三大禪院中規模宏大、歷史悠久、佔地廣闊、建築雄偉的一家。建於明朝末年,距今約三百六十多年,廟貌魏峨,深入三進,橫連幾座。 禪院為中國古翬飛式的佛教建築,具中國名山古剎的特色,禪院的首座是大雄寶殿,次殿是長壽佛殿,後座正殿是觀音殿。院後還有廣闊幽深的後花園,是二座頗具規模,港澳罕有的佛寺建築群。 大雄寶殿正對禪院,莊嚴宏偉,供奉三尊三寶佛像,皆為丈八金身,魁梧雄偉,其中之一為佛祖釋迦牟尼;殿旁懸有二個銅鐘,古色斑駁,已有三個半世紀的歷史。殿頂的簷頭瓦脊,鑲有明朝琉璃瓦及精工鑲嵌的石灣公仔,栩栩如生,維肖維妙。次殿是長壽佛殿,供奉長壽佛,佛像安詳,象徵佛陀普渡眾生精神。 進入主殿觀音殿,供奉觀音大士蓮台,樟木雕塑,十八羅漢分列主殿兩旁,雕工精細,造型神態活現,其中位於左面的一尊羅漢,眼睛浮突、鼻骨高隆、鬢髮捲曲,極像外國人,據云就是意大利威尼斯人馬可字羅,他曾在中國研習佛理。
  • 澳門三大古廟之一,環境當然非常好。要推薦的是古廟背後的後花園,環境非常清幽,是城市的後花園,又可見傳說「連理枝」的愛情故事發生地,園內亦種植著非常多的百年古樹,非常靈氣。
