Malaysia has a relatively high proportion of Chinese, so it has better preserved a lot of Chinese traditional culture. Near Petaling Street in Kuala Lumpur’s Chinatown, there is a Guandi Temple with a lot of fireworks. On weekends and holidays, countless Chinese residents come to worship.
In any country in the world, as long as there are Chinese living in places, you can always find the shadows of Guandi Temple and Guanyin Temple, which are the projections of Chinese traditional culture all over the world. The Guandi Temple in Kuala Lumpur is adjacent to the local Chinatown Petaling Street. Because it is located in the center of the city, the temple itself is not small in size. There are many Chinese residents who come to worship and the incense is very strong.
If you walking around Petaling Street then this place is very close by. We don't go inside but happened to be nearby after done some window shopping.
