- The Thean Hou Temple is a modern Chinese temple. It's located on a hill, from where you have a good view of Kuala Lumpur. If you've been to China and visited temples there, you might find it too modern and simple. However, it's still interesting and worth a visit.Written 19 October 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- The National Mosque (Masjid Negara) is the main mosque in Kuala Lumpur. We arrived during prayer times so we couldn't get in, just walk around the gardens and see it from the outside. It's quite big and new.Written 19 October 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- This was one of the stops in Central Market area and the first Indian Temple visit for this trip in KL. It actually was quieter inside than I expected.
They were very strict with ensuring no shoes were worn inside or even carried in the hands or inside a bag. A bunch of carts were in front selling various combinations of offerings for the temple.
Once inside we walked through two floors. The first floor was very bright with colorful tiles, gold trims used throughout. On the second floor, the windows gave views of the statues mounted on the rooftop.
We spent about 15 minutes inside.Written 18 October 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- 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.Written 12 September 2022
- First time visiting a mosque. Men need to have shoulders and knees covered. Women also need to have hair covered. They provide robes etc free. Tours are free and run by volunteers who are passionate about sharing their religion. Interesting tour. We missed the prayers - would recommend timing your visit for these at 130pm. Beautiful mosqueWritten 21 October 2023

- This small Chinese temple is a remarkable institution at Kuala Lumpur's Chinatown. Nicely maintained, it is a small place to understand the history of Chinese immigration in the Malaysian capital. Fortunately it is not a touristy place.Written 19 February 2023
- Lord Ganesha being my Savior over decades, I can’t imagine visiting KL without paying a visit to this temple. Very very powerful deity and if you are sincere in your prayers to him, all your prayers are always blessed by this great deity. Trust him and step forward, you will be sure that even if you encounter any problems, it will all be sorted out by your utmost faith on this deity.Written 15 December 2022
- 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.Written 13 February 2020
- 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.Written 25 June 2019
- It takes about 3 minutes walking from the exit of Jalan Ampang of LRT KLCC station. A nice and clean place to pray even the temple is quite small. A few large and solemn bodhisattva statues in the prayer hall. A canteen is right behind the prayer hall that sells vegetarian, reasonable price and nice food.Written 20 April 2023
- 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.Written 13 August 2022
- Tucked away in bustling Kuala Lumpur lies a hidden gem - the Chan She Shu Yuen Clan Ancestral Hall. Step inside its doors to embark on an illuminating journey through Malaysian Chinese heritage. Spread across two compact yet impactful rooms, captivating exhibits chronicle the remarkable achievements and resilience of this community.
In the first room, walls lined with visionary leaders, innovators and icons pay tribute to influential Malaysian Chinese who have left an indelible impact across diverse fields - from business to culture. Their stories inspire and humble.
The second room unravels the hall's own history - tales of community spirit and evolution that transformed this space into a beacon of pride. Unexpectedly, it also houses a marriage registration office where love and legacy intertwine as couples register their union.
While the website mentions free entry, there is a small RM5 fee, so come prepared with change. Beyond the exhibits, the hall's striking architecture mirrors the community's ability to artfully blend tradition and progress.Written 2 October 2023
- Lovely church with stained glass, very airy and comfortable. Sound system is also very good. Sense of peace surrounds you in this wonderful environment.Written 18 March 2023
- 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.Written 23 February 2021
