An over 130 years old temple, but standing strong and well maintained. Not very big; the tour takes no more than 10 minutes unless you spend a bit more time praying i.e. lighting up joss-sticks. For non Chinese, this will be quite cultural for you. If you visit JB during the right time of the year, apparently the temple is... More

An old temple with great history, even the local Malay Sultan visited their event. Lots of good photo shouting spot. Great place to experience Chinese Religion (Taoist to be precise). No harm to offer joss stick as a token of good will. Will definitely go there again.

Not quite sure why this temple gets such good reviews it really isn't all that impressive. Not that there is anything wrong with it but there are heaps of temples in Malaysia that are bigger an far more impressive than this one (try the one at Sandakan if you want to see something special). I agree with much of the... More

This time I made sure to get here well before closing time. The interior is small but there are some interesting displays with some signs in English. Worth a visit when you're in the area and quite easily accessible from the main immigration checkpoint.

Although this temple is quite small it was beautifully decorated in the Chinese Style. A relaxing place of worship, but do respect the people who are worshiping and do not walk in front of them.

It's a best place to learn about overseas Chinese history. The best moment to visit is during Chinese New Year period and they have a huge parade after Chinese New Year on 21th of Lunar Calendar.

Is a very meaningful place and building. The history of this place is more than 100 years. During Chinese New Year, is very crowded
