  • The temple is excellent, it is very big with lots of different parts to look around. It is well worth a visit. It is a little difficult to get to.

  • One of our favorite stops in KL! The colors of the temple are so vibrant here and the whole place just feels alive with prayers, well wishes and meditation. We loved the serene feeling of it all, even with so many people coming in and out. Truly a beautiful example of Chinese architecture and culture!
  • Pros: Peaceful, you can find place to meditate too. Its a very famous Chinese temple. Marriage registrations happens here. Nice vegetarian restaurant beneath. Many sculptures are built with writeup of their past. You will have a quite surroundings here, good for meditation. Animals sculptures are kept and birth years are mentioned to find your respective animal character. Free entry. People go there for a morning walk and a jog too. Cons: None
