4.1/5 based on 750+ 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.

  • To get here get an Uber (actually the best and cheapest way to get around KL) as it's just too far off Brickfields to actually make the walk. Its also up a hill with a steep incline. The temple itself...  read more »
  • We went to the temple on our last day in KL and we never regretted it. We loved the building and silence there. Small gift sop had reasonable prices!! 
  • had a chance to look the Chinese God.. Its a very nice & beautiful place. Must visit once during a trip to KUL. 
  • 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.
  • The Thean Hou Temple is a landmark six-tiered Chinese temple in Kuala Lumpur. It is located on a 1.67 acres of land atop Robson Heights along Lorong Bellamy, overlooking Jalan Syed Putra. It was completed in 1987 and officially opened in 1989
  • 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.
  • A good place to experience the Chinese culture in Malaysia. It's somewhere deep inside, so you may call a taxi to go there( going by car is a good option, but the parking lot there are somehow enough.).
  • One of my favorite temple spots in KL. During a clear day, this is a good place for scenic views and landscape shots. Of course, it is good for marriage too. And, don't forget to pray for your wishes ;)
