This place was really breathtaking - and not just because of the amount of incense! As foreigners and clearly tourists we were at worst ignored by the locals and at best made to feel quite welcome. Not one to miss if you're visiting China Town...More

Hidden traditional and historical temple in the busy city of KL. You might miss it, if you do not notice it. Walkable to Petaling street. Many old people in the temple helping.

Tucked away not far from Central Market, took a few tries to find entrance even with Google Maps. But lovely small Chinese temple worth a stop.

A small Chinese temple at the end of China Town. It is always amazing to see how much care they put in the temples.

It is located within Chinatown. Almost opposite the Hindu temple. It smells like incense inside. Unlike the Hindu temple, you don't have to take off your footwear here.

II you have been to China then this is just an ordinary temple. For those new to Asian countries then this is worth a look.

I have not talked to the fortune tellers in the temple. But most of the people in KL can speak English very fluently. Really a nice place. We were surprised to see that many spoke Hindi also in the temple.
