Thean Hou Temple, Kuala Lumpur Reviews

  • A beautiful temple with beautiful scenery. A great place for photography as well. Must wear appropriate clothing because it is a religious place. Free entrance. Would recommend you to just get a Grab if you want to go here because it is quite far from the nearest MRT station. There is a man selling ice cream in the parking lot and the taro one tasted great!

  • Loved visiting this temple. You have to pay for parking on your way in if you're coming via a car, but once you get in you'll be overtaken by the intricacy of the design of the temple. It overlooks the city as well, which was a nice little surprise.

  • convenient location for a nice looking chinese temple. can get a good view of KL city skyline from here

  • It's a beautiful temple with great scenery. Free entrance, good ambience, taking a grab to here is recommended.

  • Temple very beautiful. Great aura & all encompassing. I enjoyed being here more than the Petronas Tower. Best temple of Kuala Lumpur .
