According to Macau-World Heritage: The A-Ma Temple is the oldest temple containing valuable historical artifacts today, and is also the longest surviving building in Macau. The temple includes the Gate Pavilion, the Hall of Benevolence, the Hall of Guanyin and the Zhenjiao Chanlin (a buddhist pavilion), etc. When the first Portuguese settlers arrived in the 16th century and asked for the name of the place, they were told 'A-Ma Gau', the name of the temple instead. This was then transcribed by the settlers into the Portuguese Macau.

Excerpt from Macau-World Heritage: Barra Square lies in front of the A-Ma Temple. Facing the Inner Harbour, its front part is constructed from famous Portuguese mosaid, with ochre and charcoal as the principal colours. The tiles are laid in a wavy pattern to mirror the flow of a nearby river. The overall effect is one of fluidity and gives a strong seaside flavour.
