Guan Di Temple is dedicated to the God of War. Other deities here include GuanYin, Goddess of Mercy; Choy Sun, God of Prosperity; and Wen Chong, God of Learning. Built in 1888 it is very busy with people making offerings and wishes.

This place is beautiful. It may be off the beaten path but, it's worth visiting. Very serene and it's even beautiful when it rains.

Just accros the street from the Indian temple is a Chinese one with the same kind of relaxed atmosphere (keep the shoes on). This is more business oriented as it was the Chinese New Year mandarins in bright red boxes were sold at the courtyard and incense sticks inside. People come to pray in front of the installations in glass... More

Literally around the corner from the main thoroughfare of Chinatown, Petaling Street, is the Guan Di temple - incidentally also a stone's throw from the Mariamman Hindu Temple. You'll find a constant stream of devotees throughout the day, seeking blessings from Guan Di, the Taoist deity of War. There are also altars to other deities there, including some artifacts of...

An active Taoist temple where one is able to observe the rituals of its devotees. Very ornate in a distinct Chinese style, with many of the decorations having spiritual significance for this particular temple.

Was here on a Sunday, somewhere at about 2:45PM. You will see Asian visitors from all around the world offer their prayers here. Main altar is the Guan Gong where many pray to him for blessings, protection and good luck (i prayed for career luck and good mentorship).

So peaceful in such a busy area. The joss stick smells are wonderful too. Everyone who works there will answer your question with pride. Really is a wonderful place to explore even though it's small there are so many beautiful colours too see and carvings and smells. Just great.
