    Popular Temple in a busy city center

    A temple with a history that dates back to the early days of Kuala Lumpur. It is a popular visit by devotees. When visit, do bear in mind that it can get very smoky with the joss stick offering.

    Taoist Temple

    Another example of the great diversity in the area of so many different faiths and cultures blending together. Great to walk inside and see the yin and yang.
