The temple was built in 1902 to honour the Great King Hung Shing, a folk religious deity for the Chinese. The deity is a former government official who received accolades for his knowledge of geography, astronomy, and meteorology. He is also known as Tai Wong in some parts of China, and other temples have been built to honour him. Within the temple is a small altar with incense sticks and other items worshippers use to pray to the deity.

When visiting Coloane, the Hung Shing Temple is just one of the many attractions you can find. Though it’s not as touristy as the casino strip of Macau, you may be surprised by all the unique activities you can experience here. It’s rich in history and culture, so spending time here is always a good idea.

The A-Ma Cultural Village is the most famous attraction here, renowned for its peaceful ambience and long history. The temple is dedicated to the Goddess A-Ma, revered by the fishermen because she is believed to ensure their safety at sea.

Coloane Village itself provides the perfect backdrop for a relaxing afternoon. Take strolls on the narrow streets, where you will discover charming, colourful shops and temples. This is where you will also find the Coloane Market, a wonderful shopping destination for those seeking out local goods, handmade products, homemade food and other novelties.

Other attractions here include the Museum of Nature and Agriculture, as well as the Chapel of St Francis Xavier.
