Owner description: This ornate Chinese temple dedicated to the Queen of Heaven, Thean Hou, protectorate of people who make their living from the sea. The temple borrows from Buddhist, Taoist and Confucian traditions. Some visitors believe the panoramic views of KL alone make the trip up the hill worthwhile.

If you would like to see one of the cultural Chinese places you must visit the Thean Hou Temple and know the story behind each charcter.

Place not to be missed in KL.
Beautiful, well maintained temple.
Temple architecture works are beautiful.

You can get a very beautiful view of KL skyline from temple top.
Atmosphere is just peaceful.
A must visit place

I thought the temple would be harder to find but the huge signs along the walk there made it very easy. The temple is really nice with its own turtle pond and other water features. The temple itself is rather large and set high above the city which offers excellent views as well.
