When the Chan Clan was immigrating into Kuala Lumpur back at the turn of the 20th century, this temple was established in 1906 to serve as their community support. Now, it’s one of the oldest chine temples in the city. Famous for the intricate carvings of legendary Chinese figures on the kwang-tung roof, the temple also has pretty terracotta friezes. A male statue and a female statue guard the main entrance. The pillars inside are painted with battle scenes. Blue ceramic pottery lines the edges. Check out the green tiles on the roof.
The temple is today recognised as the clan house of the Chan, Chen and Tan families, who have centuries old ancestral ties. Pictures of past clan members hang on the roof.

A historic building in Chinatown. Accessible to the public for free. An Ancestral Hall for the Chan clan. Check out the mini museum at the side. Many beautiful details, especially the gilded carvings about the doorway. A quiet place located opposite KLSCAH.
A well maintained ancient building. Not easy to find parking here. Suggest to park the opposite road. There is an open parking. After visit here, you may go to Petaling street.
Kuala Lumpur's most attractive Chinese clan house. Free admission. One of the 12 tourist attractions within walking distance of Petaling Street. As you walk into building main entrance, look up for the golden wolden sculpture hanging on top. Read about the Chan clan history (left & right of inner building). Get to know Jalan Chan Sow Lin was named after him. Visit the small historic gallery located on the left.
It is located at China Town. The place is not crowded by tourist so you can properly pray here.
Historical cool place which recorded all the blood and tears spread by the people from the past fought for their land, education and honour.
