 Expatriate Malaysia Travel Guide -
Thean Hou Temple, Kuala Lumpur

 

Thean Hou Temple, Kuala Lumpur
Thean Hou Temple, Kuala Lumpur
 

Located on top of Robson Hill off Jalan Syed Putra, the Thean Hou Temple is one of the largest Chinese temples in South-East Asia.

The decorative beams, spectacular roofs, domed ceiling, calligraphic couplets, murals and elaborate embellishments reflect the features of Chinese architectural beauty in Malayisa.

 

Managed by the Selangor and Federal Territory Hainan Association, the temple belongs to the Chinese community in the country and public donations have enabled the famous tourist destination to develop by leaps and bounds.

The temple has 4 levels. The lowest level houses the marriage registration office, souvenir shops and food court while the first floor is the main hall where cultural and religious activities are held.

Upon reaching the temple shrine, one will be amazed by the dragon-inspired columns and pagoda rooftops. It is also a perfect place to relax and enjoy the panoramic view of the temple set against the Kuala Lumpur skyline.

Inside the temple, the Thean Hou Goddess sits majestically between the Goddess of the Waterfront (or known as Swei Mei Goddess) and the Goddess of Mercy or known to the Chinese as Kuan Yin.

Since the opening, the temple has been endorsed by the Tourism Development Council as a tourist destination that represents the Malaysian Chinese.
