The most well-known of the three-temple complex on Rua de Coelho do Amaral, Pao Kong Temple, Pau King, or Bao Gong, was constructed during Guangxu Reign in 1889.
In 1888, a plague spread around Macau. Someone suggested using an effigy of Lord Pao, a legendary figure in Chinese history, to drive it away. As the plague epidemic cleared, people believed that it was because of Lord Pao. Thus, they built a temple to honor and enshrine his effigy. Pao Kong is also known as the Temple of Sleeping Buddha.
Pao Kong is easy to spot by its bright yellow walls and big red Chinese characters painted all over them. The other temples in the building are Temple of Divinity of Medicine and Nanshan (Nam Sam) Temple.
