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. Enter the prayer hall to admire the three altars, with their gold statuettes of three goddesses and offerings laid at their feet. The monumental architecture of the buildings follows a classically Chinese design, with thick red pillars, upturned ornamental pagoda corners, and intricate, colorful repeated patterns.

  • I had no idea such a beautiful temple was so nearby where I live. Lots of opportunities for great shots. Beautiful view of the city from the top. Free entry and only RM3 for parking. Come in the morning as I got there at 2 and they were already removing the lanterns.
  • Interesting temple and good to view if you like this kind of stuff. I did not find a guide which was a pity as I would like to hear some more details about the place.
  • All the twelve zodiacs in the Chinese calendar along with the year is mentioned with a statue of the animal.the Trevor offs very beautifully built.very beautiful..
  • This is really the most beautiful Chinese temple in KL. The pictures speak for itself and also reflects the sacrifice and dedication of the devotees to the temple. The Zodiac garden is also a fun place to explore.
  • Beautiful temple with great authetic Chinese Temple architecture complex with vibrant colour makes the place anchating ... somewhat like being in China.
