Despite the exterior grandeur and impressiveness of the design that Thean Hou Temple offers, we were left deflated at the emptiness of the interior. In our minds, we had pictured a traditional temple, with shrines and others related objects, however, after entering through the large...More

The temple is not very old (built in the 1980s), but the architecture is quite impressive. There is a small garden outside with a statue of the goddess Guan Yin and animal figurines of the Chinese zodiac to browse through. The main temple courtyard with...More

Relatively new temple very atractive yo one's eyes with lovely details. Lots of Chinese there praying. Quite difficult tonget there by foot -doable from Jalan Scott/Little India though. The other option is taxi. RM 8-10 from Petaling Street (China Town). One of KL's must-see.

RM 15 taxi ride from KL Sentral, be wary no taxi up there to return. Great views from all over the temple. Lovely Buddhist temple. No charge.

Well built and kept like any other Buddhist temple. Built on a high location. Not to be missed. A lot to see and learn, from sculptures to getting down on knees and praying.

This is a place for you to pray. You may make wishes here and took some photo. This place is crowded when there is an event and hard to find parking.

Very impressive, with striking architecture and dragons. Pray to your heart, though at times noisy with visitors. Do not miss the oracles. It could tell where you ar heading.
