    It's a bit of a hike up the hill so if you can take a Grab up, it'll leave you energy to walk back down. It's across a highway and "river" from KL Sentral monorail station and Brickfields mall.

    We went to visit the Mosque and we had a beautiful experience. Women have to wear a cover up they lend you. We had a guide explain to us and we understood a lot about the religion. It was large and beautiful

    Very colorful and huge. There was a wedding going on so it felt a bit intrusive to be exploring and taking pictures.

    The most beautiful mosque in KL, I recommend everyone to visit it. There's also a lot of monkeys running around in the afternoon on the right side of the main gate.

    The Guan Di temple is a Chinese temple dedicated to the legendary General, Guan Di, who served Emperor Liu Bei of Shu Han. Deified, he is said to grant wishes to those of pure mind. If that doesn’t do it for you, there’s a Guan Dao pole-axe weapon made from 59kg of copper that believers like to touch for good luck.

    The architecture is a typical Chinese style temple with some magnificent dragons adoring the roofs. The temple is just off Petaling Street and is definitely worth a detour if in the area.

    Smart looking building with some nice stained glass windows etc.

    Holy water at entrance needs filling as both receptacles were empty at the start of mass.

    We could not find anywhere to light a candle.

    Well worth a visit if you are nearby.

    It is also the ancestral home of the four founders on whose name the temple is build using bricks wood and stone. It has been declared as one of the 13 must visit tourist attractions of Kuala Lumpur. Fine architecture and three deities representing three ancestors of Mr. Chan.

    The Church seems quite modern from the outside but the interior is classic even though quite bare with not a lot of decoration.

    The Masjid As-Syakirin is a mosque very close to KLCC park and the Petronas Towers. Set on a small hill, the mosque is a beautiful example of Malaysian modern architecture blended with traditional Malay and Arab styles. The building and especially the main prayer hall has a very symmetrical design. The pillars each end in an umbrella like capital that form a continuous structure to form the roof. The building is already well lit with an open structure, and this is accentuated by the many translucent green glass domes spread over the roof, capped by a single dome in the centre of the roof that looks a little like an upside down bowl. A pretty building, but don’t go out of the way to see it unless you’re already planning on going to KLCC. It’s a pity that the area surrounding the mosque is being redeveloped. It won’t be long before the pretty roof is hidden from view of the skyscrapers.

    The Kun Yam Thong is a Buddhist temple. The temple was smaller than I was expecting with one main prayer hall and two subsidiary prayer rooms. Pretty much all the incarnations of Buddha are represented here including the Laughing Buddha, Guan Yin and other Bodhisattvas. The depiction of Guan Yin, as she is shown in her form with a thousand arms and eyes, the many eyes to comprehend the cries for help and hands symbolizing the power to help with her blessings.

    What’s more, the temple also has a cafeteria where vegetarian meals are served. This was great for me as it meant that I didn’t have to find some place for lunch. Even better, the temple serves Chinese style vegetarian food.

    As it was near lunchtime when I visited, the food hall was full of diners and many office workers had also come to the temple to offer their prayers too. Although not a large temple, I thought the gild statues of the buddhas were worth a visit since I had combined it with lunch.

    We arrived a little before 8.30 prayers on a Sunday. There was a table of Malaysian people selling food for a donation - they had great English and were super friendly. We sold us a bowl of Cincau (like soy milk/water soup) and a semi-sweet jelly thing for RM3 and RM1 (approx NZD1 and NZD0.30).
    A lot of people were already at prayer in the main temple, there were seperate statues which people holding incense were walking around as well as a dedication centre (?) which heaps of statues and images in it.
    Make sure you take your shoes off before stepping onto the temple or worship site - you'll see signs in English and other people's shoes so you'll know where to leave yours.
    Once the chanting/offering started (at 8.30) it was beautiful, they rang a bell and took some incense, flowers and fruit up to the main Buddha and a monk in orange robes began to chant long and deep.

    Nice temple, and the priests are very accomodative. They understand the different rituals of Indians and don't blink an eye if you do something different to local customs.
