  • It's a bit of a hike up the hill so if you can take a Grab up, it'll leave you energy to walk back down. It's across a highway and "river" from KL Sentral monorail station and Brickfields mall.

  • One of our favorite stops in KL! The colors of the temple are so vibrant here and the whole place just feels alive with prayers, well wishes and meditation. We loved the serene feeling of it all, even with so many people coming in and out. Truly a beautiful example of Chinese architecture and culture!
  • The temple is clean and the SOP signages are well placed. There are many food stalls outside the temple, if proper stall is build with kitchen will be good. Good food stall operators with nice food will attracts eaters too. Just the parking fee of RM10 (which written donation) is a bit high. The road at the open parking space are sand, it will turn mud during raining day.
