Overview

The name Macau was taken from A-Ma-Gao (Bay of A-Ma) where this temple stands. Legend has it that A-Ma was a poor girl traveling to China but was turned away by wealthy ship owners. Finally, a fisherman took her to Macau, surviving a storm that sunk all the other ships. Later, she reappeared to the fisherman as a goddess and so he built her this temple. Situated on the southern tip of Macau, the temple has a friendly, welcoming atmosphere and a steady stream of worshipers.
