Right in the heart of KL is this beautiful temple. You have to leave your shoes outside for a symbolic amount of 2 MYR. Inside are lots of colorful paintings and deity sculptures. Photography is permitted. Definitely worth a visit.

Yes it is free. We didn't put our shoes in the deposit place. We just left them outside and it was fine.
