This ornate Chinese temple dedicated to the Queen of Heaven, Thean Hou, protectorate of people who make their living from the sea. The temple borrows from Buddhist, Taoist and Confucian traditions. Some visitors believe the panoramic views of KL alone make the trip up the hill worthwhile.

The turtles are fun for kids and watching the burning of incense and prayers was an informative lesson for me and my kids as we seek to understand other world views.

Free to enter. There was some construction afoot for the upcoming Chinese New Year. Also some step to get to the entrance on the second floor. The main temple has three altars.

I think about 20 rm from KLCC. Use a budget taxi and ask for a rough price first. Traffic might slow you down and make the journey more. You could always ask in your hotel how much their taxi's cost as most hotels use... More
