A Chinese temple as the other thousands Chinese temples worldwide, lot of dragons, statues, smoke of burning and golden things. Boring, if you have seen one, you have seen them all to me ;)

Well worth a visit to soak up the scents and sights in an ancient, working, Chinese temple.

It is a privilege to be allowed hi here, and I was delighted that everyone seems to respect that.

This is purportedly the oldest Chinese temple in Malaysia, & it may be. Bukit Cina, not far away is the oldest sizable Chinese cemetery outside China, so the community here is very, very old. The cool thing about viewing this temple is that it's still very actively in use & they feel free to let photographers come in & discretely photograph the worshipers as they perform their genuflections.

This is the oldest Buddhist temple in Malaysia. It's really beautiful, costs nothing to get into, and if you're around at 4 pm there is a service that goes for about half an hour. Well worth the visit.

Located in an interesting Harmony street, the street that presents a Hindu temple, a Muslim mosque and this old Buddhist temple within 100m. This temple is a beautiful original temple, well preserved and is still a holy place that host a lot of Buddhist coming to pray everyday.
