Located in Santo Antonio, Macau, the Na Tcha Temple is a Chinese folk religion temple dedicated to the worship of Na Tcha deity, a folklore God of War. Located at the side of the Ruins of St. Paul's, the temple was constructed in 1888 as a homage to the child god of war, to put an end to the plague razing the region.
A part of the Historic Center of Macao, the traditional Na Tcha Temple is built in a simple manner, with the central courtyard opening up to the grey edifice of the main building, adorned with basic embellishments. The entrance porch is furnished with paintings on both sides of the wall with the roof built in the traditional yingshan style. Each year on the 18th day of the fifth month in the Chinese lunar calendar, a procession is held of the Na Tcha's image, making it one of the best times to visit the temple.
After visiting the temple, one can visit the Na Tcha Exhibition Hall nearby (at the Old City Wall) housing displays and wall arts dedicated to Na Tcha deity. A visit to the Na Tcha Temple is best combined with St Paul's Ruins located close by.
