  • Gereja sembayang untuk orang Tionghua and tempat sesuai untuk mengambil gambar. Kalau pergi semasa tahun baru orang Tionghua akan ramai orang and sukar untuk cari tempat berehat.  more »
  • The Temple of equally notable, its climate and impressive architecture. Although it is difficult to access, because public transport does not drives up, you will want to order the Uber, which is connected by a under the same gate. While in the temple is worth buying at a nearby stall bird and let him what has us bring happiness and success in life:)

  • A temple worth visiting and my husband and I during our stay in Kl we managed to visit him because through our hotel we bought a package at MYR 160 in two, which included visiting the Batu Caves, the Thean Hou Temple and stop at three stores in one of the chocolate and the other of pewter, batik. Obviously we purchased only because we were the two temples and in practice it was just the two of us with a driver who took us to these places giving us plenty of time to visit them. The temple is located on a hill southwest of the city and is a beautiful Chinese temple at four levels. It is dedicated to the heavenly protector of the divine mother Thean Hou sailors and fishermen. The temple has tiered roofs in Chinese style, decorated with Golden dragons and many red lanterns for Chinese new year. Free admission. Outside there are 12 statues representing the Chinese zodiac animals and back a pond with turtles. Very nice and charming much that first felt like India at Batu Caves and here in China.

  • 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.
