Kun Iam Temple

Recommended
Founded towards the late 14C, Kun Iam Temple is dedicated to the bodhisattva of compassion Avalokiteśvara (known as Kun Iam in Macau). Adorned with varnished statuettes, the roof is particularly striking. This temple, one of the most impressive in Macau, houses a statue of Kun Yam, the bodhisattva of mercy, who is depicted here crowned and dressed in brocaded silk, and watched over by eighteen arhats (disciples of Buddha). The legend of Kun Yam is depicted in the many paintings here.
