Temple dedicated to deities of Southern Chinese traditions and Buddhism. A serene religious centre on Robson Hill overlooking the sky scrapper landscape of Kuala Lumpur. Temple opens from 8 am to 10 pm daily. The temple will be full of people during Chinese New Year, and Buddhist celebrations. Contrary to what had been shown on the map, walking here from the closest LRT station is not recommended, especially under the blazing hot topical sun.

Warning: don't attempt to walk from nearest station to here. It will cost you roughly 45 minutes. Nice Chinese temple with contemporary atmosphere. Some parts are being renovated so there are construction here and there. I see many local visit here for celebration and many tourist are here too. Facilities are not quite there, toilet is old and dirty but totally usable. To going here you may want to call Uber or Grab. Bus and train nearest stops are not remotely close to this temple. Not quite for backpackers, come here if you have some spare time to enjoy KL.

Fantastic temple! Free entrance. We've get there when they were preparing for the new Chinese year so lots of Chinese lanterns all over the place, amazing decorations, statues and sculptures! There are 2 beautiful artificial waterfalls with statues and an area with all the statues of the animals from the Chinese calendar with a inscription showing the years and the main qualities of each animal/person born on that year. Inside the temple admire the ceiling and the statues. There is a tradition - there's a pot with sticks and you take them out pray and release them... one will remain higher then the others... watch the number on it and search in the small drawer under the pot :) yes you have an answer to your prayer ;) There's also the marriage court decorated with amazing flowers... and under the temple is a shop with souvenirs and a food court.

Buddhist temple with panoramic view. Recently repainted but i felt it has lost the ancient feel after the make-over. Seems like a favourite stop for tourists (bus-loads of them depending on when you visit!). Wasn't my kind of quiet solace that i was seeking. Nevertheless, nice surrounding scenery.

A must to go during Chinese New Year. It is full of decorative things and lighting. get ready for long jam Q, it is either you go early to avoid the crowd. best time to go is 5pm and wait till golden hour and night fall

I visited both at day and night, there are different sceneries. It's worth to drive here and have a look. On daytime you can have a view of the city landscape from the top of the temple. At night it's better to shoot the temple with its lighted lanterns. Though its beauty is far from many traditional Chinese temples in Greater China, it is a decent local one with certain attractiveness. There are Zodiac animals statues, very family friendly and attract quite some attention. Riding on the tiger and have someone take a picture of you would be one of the funny things to do here.

It’s nice location for sight seeing and photography. However it’s advisable to dress appropriately (less revealing) as it’s a religious place for Buddhists worshipping.

It’s nice location for sight seeing and photography. However it’s advisable to dress appropriately (less revealing) as it’s a religious place for Taoists worshipping.
