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.

Nothing much there to see. It's a Chinese temple with some statues of animals and deities there. There is a souvenir shop there as well but basically, that's all. I reckon half an hour is all you might need.

As my wife is Chinese, we visited to the temple several times while in KL. There is a very pleasant atmosphere and even for someone like myself who does not participate in the actual activities, there is plenty to appreciate while walking around.

I'd recommend getting a taxi to this temple as it's not easily reachable by public transport. On the day we visited the rain was torrential - the kind where an umbrella is pointless because you're going to get wet anyway - but the beauty of...More

Great little stop-off in KL for a couple of hours and should be on any cultural tour map that you have. The Temple itself is beautiful - a real riot of colour and texture against the backdrop of KL. Would be useful if there was...More

Not easy for wheelchairs. To reach the big hall you need to go up stairs. I didn't see any lifts so I would say not very good for wheelchair users.

Yes it is free, but take some change to offer a donation for prayer. There aren't clothing restrictions as per say, but it is considerate to not wear "short shorts" or singlets. Hope you have a wonderful time visiting.
