Very nice place, Peaceful and glorious. Parking is available and location access is very good. It has some steps, then a little hard to visit for old people and young children. one negative point is we could not find a bottle of water in this site!

I came here to register my wedding registration as there is a official Wedding Registrar Office located under this temple (near canteen). It is a convenient place in KL for Chinese couple to have a wedding registration here. Nearer compare to Putrajaya office. View is beautiful here and you all can take pre-wedding pic/ family photo with your nice wedding... More

I travelled to Singapore/Kuala Lumpur during my Spring break. Unknowingly, it was the Chinese Lunar New Year! I was glad that I was able to see it. It was an unforgettable experience.

One of the larger contemporary Chinese temples. Near KL Sentral - 30 minutes walk (towards NU Sentral, straight up and after the river/cannel, right turn till you see the signage. Need to use Google map for detail). Short stretch of uphill road. Temple is relatively new and well maintained when compared with others in KL district. Good view of KL... More
