Tam Kung Temple

Taoist Temple in Coloane

This temple is dedicated to Tam Kung, a Taoist god of seafarers. Inside the main altar is a long whale bone carved into a model of a dragon boat. To the left of the main altar is a path leading to the roof, which has views of the village and waterfront. It's the centre of festivities during the Tam Kung Festival, a folk festival celebrated in Coloane on the eighth day of the fourth lunar year.
