This is a small Taoist temple in Kuala Lumpur's Chinatown. Sin Sze Si Ya Temple is just a small building amid old shophouses. Opening hour is short and there is no particular reason to come.

The temple is located on a small side road and easily missed. Entry was free and it was interesting inside..but only a place you would visit for 20 to 30 minutes and nit really a big attraction.

As of Aug 2022 it did not seem open, it looks unkempt/derelict and doesn't seem in a nice area, there are lots of homeless people around and the temple is on a back/side street. Go to one of the many other excellent nearby temples in Chinatown.

Decent temple experience but it's really small,with no entry fee. Chances to get a decent photograph here is really low

A temple with a history that dates back to the early days of Kuala Lumpur.

It is a popular visit by devotees.

When visit, do bear in mind that it can get very smoky with the joss stick offering.

One of the oldest temples in KL and very beautiful to look at. It's located near Chinatown so worth stopping by if you're in the area.

The Sin Sze Si Ya Temple is a Chinese temple built by Kapitan Cina Yap Ah Loy, who was a chinese official and fought on the winning side of the Klang War of 1867–1874. The temple was built to honour the patron deities, Sin Sze Ya and Si Sze Ya, to whom Yap Ah Loy attributed his success. The temple is fairly typical of Chinese temples with a prayer and offering tables, lots of incense and statues of various deities. The place is definitely more for worship and as a tourist attraction, so I wouldn’t go out of the way to visit unless your near the Chinatown area.

I love this beautifully decorated more than 100 year old temple founded by Captain Yap Ah Loy. Next to Central Market. Waking distance from Pasar Seni station can be reached by two different rail systems

Those who like to know about local history, culture and religion its a must visit. Most interesting thing is the place is co-managed by Indian Punjabi origin Malaysians not only Chinese origins as seen in other temple. true Malaysian culture.

Another example of the great diversity in the area of so many different faiths and cultures blending together. Great to walk inside and see the yin and yang.
