Taipa Temples: Kun Iam Temple
The Goddess of Mercy, Kun Iam, is said to have had an epiphany in the caves at the present day temple.
To mark the occasion, locals placed her idol there, which turned the site into an area of mass pilgrimage.
A temple was then built in 1871, and reconstructed in 1876 after being severely damaged by a typhoon in 1874.
Located by Altira Macau, Kun Iam Temple is rarely visited by tourists visiting Macau.
