    Grew up visiting this temple and the past 10 years, it has truly transformed..thanks to the generous donation of the public. Pretty much the most popular Thai temple in Petaling Jaya or even the Klang Valley. This temple now has many more car parks within the compound, proper walkways & stairs, tiles on areas to do prayers, refurbished structures.. During Wesak and some events, it could get extremely crowded. A suggestion is to take public transport such as Grab/Uber. Since not all areas are covered, bring along an umbrella for it may get very hot or wet duri rainy season. Some may not know, there is a little Café that serves up Thai dishes in the temple. Think it is open depending on the mood of the operator 😅 I'd say their food is edible..

    Do not overrated what you have received, nor envy others. He who envies others does not obtain peace of mind. Buddha

    Very peaceful and surprisingly big for a Thai temple in Malaysia. Feels like you're in Thailand.

    Wat Chetawan is the famous Buddhist Thai temple in Klang Valley. It is the symbols of close relationship between Thailand and Malaysia. Many Buddhist came to pray at this temple.

Where to stay in Petaling Jaya

Petaling Jaya is just far enough away from central Kuala Lumpur to be more affordable and less crowded, but still well connected enough to make traveling a breeze. You can find plenty of mid-range hotels, as well as some luxurious options, although not much in the way of low-budget accommodations. Make sure to look for something close to an LRT (rapid transit) station for easy access into central Kuala Lumpur. If none of the accommodations in Petaling Jaya suit your taste, simply stay in Kuala Lumpur proper; excellent public transport connections make the commute simple and quick.
