The Opening of Kun Iam Storehouse

Dedicated to the Goddess of Mercy, Kun Iam Tong Temple (Pou Chai Sim Un) is not only one of the three oldest temples in Macao but one of the few to host an overnight vigil. This year, the annual ‘Open Treasures’ obeisance - derived from southern Chinese folklore but with a strong local flavour - falls on the 22nd. Believers pray from 11:00pm the previous evening until the next morning in order to ‘return money’, ‘borrow money,’ and beseech protection, while incense pervades the air and pinwheel stalls pop up outside the temple.

Incense & Pinwheel Stalls
Date & Time: 21/2 at 8:00pm to 22/2 at 7:00am
Venue: The pavement in front of Kun Iam Tong Temple, Av. do Coronel Mesquita
