Always my favourite temple in Kuala Lumpur. Big, beautiful and full of character. Best to visit in the mornings, especially when the skies are blue. Otherwise your photos will not turn out nice at all.

Peaceful temple. Worth a visit. This was my first visit to Buddhist temple in Malaysia. There is no public transportation to this temple. You have to either take a taxi or walk about 2 km from Brickfields. They have a general purpose hall for marriage functions etc. There shops and restaurants at the basement.
