This ornate Chinese temple dedicated to the Queen of Heaven, Thean Hou, protectorate of people who make their living from the sea. The temple borrows from Buddhist, Taoist and Confucian traditions. Some visitors believe the panoramic views of KL alone make the trip up the hill worthwhile.

Good views of the city. Cute garden with statues of the zodiacs. Nice enough place for a short visit, but nothing terribly special.

I loved this Temple, simply amazing, its located on foothill, where you can see a very nice view for the city and the sky. It was very huge and very well maintained, don't forget to bring your camera to take unforgettable photos.

This temple was more beautiful and larger than I expected. While there isn't really any "tourist" information available, it's beautiful just to walk around and explore.

During the New Year celebrations, red lanterns are used for...More

There is no entrance fee. When I visited, it was quiet and not at all touristy. It was just visited by locals coming to worship. Very quiet and serene and the view of the city skyline is nice as well from the temple... More

I think about 20 rm from KLCC. Use a budget taxi and ask for a rough price first. Traffic might slow you down and make the journey more. You could always ask in your hotel how much their taxi's cost as most hotels use... More

Not easy for wheelchairs. To reach the big hall you need to go up stairs. I didn't see any lifts so I would say not very good for wheelchair users.
