Pou Chai Temple

    The Templo de Pou Chai, also known as Kun Iam Tong Temple, was founded circa 17th century. By now, it is almost 400 years old and is one of the three oldest temples of Macao. It was reconstructed in 1818 and 1858, during the reign of Emperor Jiaqing and Emperor Xianfeng of Qing dynasty, to its present magnificent look. The Temple has raised eaves, a typical feature of Buddhist architecture of ancient China, and incorporated architectural elements prevalent in temples of Southern China during the Ming and Qing dynasties. The founder of the Temple, monk Shilian Dashan (1633-1705), was a follower of Caodong School of the Southern lineage of Chan Buddhism.
