Sam Kai Vui Kun, known also as Kuan Tai Temple, is located in front of St. Dominic’s Market Complex, near Senado Square, in the traditional commercial center of Macau.
Sam Kai Vui Kun was built in 1750 initially as the meeting place of Chinese tradesmen. It was not until the advent of Chinese Chamber of Commerce of Macau in 1912 that the Sam Kai Vui Kun’s function as a meeting place was weakened. Because it has been dedicated to Guan Yu (Kuan Tai) – the God of Martial Arts and God of Wealth since its foundation, it was gradually converted into a temple.
In 2005, it was inscribed into the UNESCO’s World Heritage List as it forms part of Historic Centre of Macau. Sai Kai Vui Kun literally means ”a community hall for three streets”.
Opening hours: Daily, 9:00am–6:00pm
