Visit Thean Hou Temple, a six-tiered Chinese temple. Built by the city's Hainanese community and dedicated to the goddess Tian Hou (The Heavenly Mother), the temple was completed in 1989.

  • 记得最近我参加朋友的婚姻登记,一对一对的佳人紧张又兴奋的等待和接受亲友的祝福。尤其是在好日子总是散发着幸福的氛围... 乐圣岭天后宫这里古色古香。农历新年期间,一定会挂满红灯笼,相当壮观!值得一游的寺庙! 
  • This temple situated in the periphery of the city this pretty well consists of several parts among it gardens with small lakes full of turtles, inside is quite curious especially if you have not seen many Chinese temples, to my I liked a lot, that if this remote of the city I went by taxi but not me came out very expensive.

  • This is a lovely and peaceful place for worship and reflection. Gorgeous temple overlooking the landscape of KL, lovely garden to walk around, take photos. A selection of religion related gift shops and eateries abound. It is truly worth visiting.
  • Located at the end of Jalan Jelai, in the old part of Kuala Lipis town facing the Jelai River. A medium-size temple about 150 meters south from the bottom of Medan Tangga. On the facade of the temple is stated the year 1898.
  • The place breathes divinity. Simple yet good architectural style with multilayers. No invasive solicitation of donations, what one feels like offering with mind or money is ok. The place offers peace of mind and very clean environs. Best thing is the free availability of Sutra CDs and literature. A must visit for any tourist to Kuala Lumpur. Divakaran Premnath Trivandrum.

  • Lovely temple, very colourful and seems to be a popular marriage venue! Probably worth a trip, there are a few levels to explore but it's not massive. Bit in the middle of nowhere, but often a taxi will agree to wait around and take you back or you can walk there from KL Sentral train station in about 30mins.
  • This place is fantastic. Amazing paint works and some of the finest religious architectures. Impressive ambient and a number of decent souvenir shops. Definitely worths the visit.
