Thean Hou Temple Kuala Lumpur
When you come to Kuala Lumpur, there is plenty to do. The city has a lot of tourist attractions, including of course the Petronas Towers and the Batu Caves. If you go to this cosmopolitan city, don’t miss the temples. In Kuala Lumpur, there are many, including the Thean Hou Temple.
We took the Grab to this temple because public transport is a difficult ride. It is possible, but it takes a long time. This is because this temple is outside the city, so if you come from the center, you have to change a lot. The Grab will drop you off in front of the door, perfect!
The Thean Hou Temple or the Temple of the Goddess of Heaven is one of the oldest and largest temples in Southeast Asia. The Hainanese community, the Chinese community, built this temple on a hill in 1894. This provides a beautiful view of the city.
The temple is free to visit by tourists and is still used by many Chinese who come here to pray. For a few Malaysian ringgit, you can buy incense sticks and burn them. You can also walk around the different floors and see how much attention has been paid to all the details.
Royal Museum and Mid Valley Mall
You can easily spend an hour here and go through the different floors. It’s especially useful to combine the temple with a visit to the Royal Museum, which seems to need restoration and the Mid Valley Mall. We haven’t visited the Royal Museum yet, but the reviews on Tripadvisor don’t lie. Well, we have to experience that for ourselves. Who knows, it might be beautiful and we might move in a month. 😉
