Amazing temple with great views of KL. It felt like a slice of heaven amongst a busy city. Being a European tourist it was fascinating to just sit and watch the happenings of the place and experience their religion. Highly recommend!

It is not something special, but it is very beautiful place. It is good idea to visit it if you have 1-2 free hours

just around 20 mins walk from the train station Thun Sambhatan... an amazing discovery of a quiet place... The main temple is very beautiful and everyone is welcomed there. You can buy candles and incence sticks and light them and offer your prayers. Will definitiely go there again

Nice place to take a picture with an animal statue outside the building. Inside the temple is for praying place. It has 3 big size Guan Yim. No charge, only donation.

Just opposite Mid valley shopping complex. The building is nice. During Chinese New Year will switch a lot lighting and it crowded too. We normally come here to pray once a year during CNY. Other Chinese festival also crowded. Parking should not so much problem. Workers will show where to park of course parking lot is limited when too late.

First of all i found it very difficult to find when we first tried, as according to my guide book, we found the nearest station but the temple was no where near it, and could not be seen. We took a taxi the following day and asked the taxi driver to stay as there was no way to get back... More

Beautiful, but so small! It's nice to play with encens sticks though which are reading your future :) The view is not to come for, but the temple is nicely decorated, and it's peace part of KL to get out from the buzz of the city. To do coupled with the Chinese temple of jalan ampang.

I went here a numerous time. Every time, it is a pleasure to be here. For some reason, it is always raining when I am here. Probably, ushering my visit. I bought my partner to do some praying and wandering around for some pictures. The Temple is well-maintained and clean. Do make this Temple as a wishlist for your make... More
