TempleThis is a must see. It is easy to find as the metro, I believe it's the blue line, is named for the temple.
quiet place of worshipWe went well after the Chinese New Year and the jostling crowd had gone leaving the Taoist temple to its quiet lot of faithful worshippers. Happily we had a guide who explained that the huge abacus on one wall was there to count the good or bad deeds of a soul. The Kwan Yin goddess of Mercy at the entrance is part of the temple's Buddhist history. There were persons offering joss stick incenses or throwing red wooden "dice" and consulting the texts written on long rods in a jar at an altar. The main altar and the temple architecure are indeed worthwhile to see.
Same as other templeIf you haven't seen the temples before this one can be interesting for you, but after a while and visiting so many temples all looks like each other and not that interesting
Don't come during Chinese New YearBeautiful traditional temple but if you don't like to get jostled around and don't like being surrounded by a ton of people, I recommend not to come right after Chinese New Year. The temple along with the nearest subway station is packed with the locals coming to pay respects. Unless you'd like to observe the temple at peak capacity and activity, then I'd say come and see it for a unique experience!
Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
Very ancient templeI'd probably appreciate this place more if we had a tour guide. The temple shows its age except for the newer additions. A lot of people visit this place to pray so be mindful.
