媽閣廟(粵語:ma5 gok3 miu6,「媽」變調為「馬」;葡萄牙語:Templo de A-Má或Templo Chinês da Barra),原稱媽祖閣,主奉海神媽祖,是位於澳門半島西南方的標誌性建築物之一,現為澳門三大古剎中最古老者。2005年作為澳門歷史城區的部分被列入世界文化遺產名錄內。媽閣廟始建於1488年,時值明朝。當時媽閣廟門前已為澳門之海岸線,是當地及附近居住之漁民作業之上岸補給、歇息和祈福之處。廟宇背山面海,沿崖建築,古木參天,風光優美。整座廟宇包括大殿(又稱神山第一殿)、石殿(又稱正覺禪林)、弘仁殿、觀音閣等4座主要建築。石獅鎮門、飛檐凌空,是一座富有中國文化特色的古建築。經過廟門及花崗石牌坊,便是庭院,循著山麓的石階小徑,拾級而上,即可抵達建於巉岩巨石間、就石窟鑿成的弘仁殿。殿內四壁,雕刻著海魔神將,色彩斑斕,中央供奉天后。自弘仁殿至觀音閣,沿著山崖有不少石刻,或為名流政要詠題,或為騷人墨客遣興,楷草篆隸,諸體俱備。觀音閣位於廟之最高處,供奉觀音菩薩。不少西洋畫家亦曾描繪了廟前繁華景象,而媽閣廟亦出現在最早一批在中國拍攝的照片。目錄1 傳說2 注釋3 景觀危機3.1 紙幣取材4 參看5 外部連結傳說主條目:媽祖相傳媽祖乃福建莆田女子,又稱娘媽,本姓林,生時能預言吉凶,物化登仙後常顯靈海上,幫助海難商人及漁民消災解難,化險為夷,閩南人船員為了能在靠岸時祭祀,遂與當地居民商議,在現址立廟。而庭院內有中國帆船石刻浮雕,傳說娘媽曾乘此船自家鄉出海,經歷颱風巨浪,平安抵澳。

This panorama was taken in China, Asia

This is an overview of Asia

Asia is the biggest continent on Earth, a darling little gem floating around in space.

Hm, what is Asia? Who's in on it?

China and India are safe bets for Asian nations. Korea, Japan, Thailand, you're fine.

Europe? No. Europe would sort of be on the "Asian continent" if not for those pesky Ural mountains dividing things up in the middle, and then also the whole lineage of kings and wealth and nations and the EU and all that "give me my respect" stuff.
Russia would probably be happiest as its own continent, so for now we'll leave it in "Eurasia" and just hope the natural gas supplies keep flowing.

Pakistan and Afghanistan are dang close to Asia, but politically they show up in "Middle East" news stories an awful lot. Verdict: Eurasia.

I guess we'll actually have to consider everything from Turkey on eastward to be "Eurasian", although the moniker seems overlappitory of the territory.

The Asian economy is now officially raging like a wild furnace of lava that consumes everything in its path. Japan has had the largest individual economy in Asia for decades, but it is forecast that both India and China will outstrip Japan within twenty years.

China is the largest holder of United States debt and is positioned to become the world's next superpower, provided that Godzilla doesn't return and decide to stomp everybody back into the Shang Dynasty.
