Built between 1736 and 1795, the Local God of Land Temple right inside the Camoes Garden is dedicated to Tou Tei, the God of Earth. Not to be mistaken with another Tou Tei Temple, a small shrine on the crossing of Rua do Patane and Rua do Coelho do Amaral. Legend has it, Tou Tei appeared to a tormented young man in human form and helped him resolve a desperate situation. So, the residents built the temple to honor the god.
It is not like other temples with its stone arch and a moon-shape doorway to the famous Camoes Garden. There are also shrines located on different levels. Besides the God of Land, other deities worshiped in the temple are Goddess Kun lam, Buddha, Hua Tuo and God of Medicine.
Despite being right next to Camoes Garden, there are rarely any tourists in the temple. This makes it an ideal place to relax and snap away.
