Pou Tai Un
Pou Tai Un in Taipa is one of the most picturesque and most decorative temples in Macau. It was first founded in the 19th century by Buddhist monks and the original prayer hall contains images of the three Precious Buddhas.
Since it’s inception, both the monastery and temples have been extended and enriched by devotees of the temple. There are now new pavilions with soaring yellow roof tiles, and an elegant statue of Kun Iam on a marble-columned terrace.
The monks live in the adjoining building. When not busy with prayers, they tend a large vegetable garden and operate a vegetarian restaurant where some of the produce is prepared and served. Whether you are a vegetarian or not, you will enjoy the casual verandah cafe, where the freshness of the ingredients is matched by the imaginative preparation and wide range of dishes offered.
