(4.1/5 based on 800+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Very Chinese like venue where it is well known for their ROM Services among couples. There is a beautiful scenery on top of the upper deck where the temple is located. 
  • A peaceful retreat from the manic noise of the City Thean Hou Temple is only 20 minutes by monorail and a short walk from the City centre. It is an immaculatly kept place of worship, an air of relaxed...  more »

  • 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.
