    This temple can be reached by foot from KL Central. The walk through Little India is pleasant. Be aware, there is a hillside walk needed to reach the temple. It isn't too long but it's certainly steep! Time can be spent at the temple, taking in views and enjoying the tranquility it offers. Late afternoon or evening could be a better time for taking photographs. Do some research on that.

    You can go inside at certain times for free. You have to take your shoes off and pay 20 sen to leave them at a stand next to the entrance. The best bit is the entrance tower (which you can see from the street outside at any time), the inside isn't as good so it's not the end of the world if you go when it is closed.

    Went there not only to perform my prayer, but also taking nice photo as well within the mosque vicinity. Mosque's staff is great, friendly and willing to went extra mile.

    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.

    Walking around and stumbled upon this temple situated right beside some modern building. I read that this temple had a long history. Very typical architecture of a Chinese temple and they worship Guan Di and that was most probably why the name. Worth a short visit to soak into the history of the vicinity, which is China town.

    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.

    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.

    Nice quaint English-style Church that is close to the main square and is worth visiting. There was a pushy woman at the entrance making sure everyone was wearing masks.

    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.

    The temple is very beautiful and inside there are also 2 small rooms with exhibits about the history of the temple and its founders which are easy to miss as they are in rooms off the main temple courtyard.

    Close to the main road and plenty of construction, but still a peaceful place to visit. Good photo opportunities. It’s just 10 minutes walk from Titiwangsa Monorail station. As they are constructing the new MRT line right now, you can only enter by walking back down Jalan Tun Razak, away from the monorail station. There is a small, easy to miss, entrance on the left. Avoid using the mapping apps. They will take you to the back of the temple from where it’s no longer possible to enter.

    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.
