Visited the Wat Chetawan for the very first time today and it was a big and beautiful Thai temple here in KL. There are a few buildings in the compound and it does seem to get quite a good traffic flow by about 10am.

yes,they do prayers for amulets daily. I'm not sure about the rest but you can ask them. There will be a monk stationed at the main hall for chanting or pRayers for you with holy water.
