This Chinese Taoist temple was built in 1864, and today is the oldest temple of this religion in the capital. It is also the most revered temple of the Chinese community.
From the street it is difficult to notice it, the entrance to it is completely inconspicuous, and at first it seems that this is the most ordinary small local Chinese temple. But it is worth going inside, as you will discover its scale: in addition to the premises of the temple, it even has its own courtyard and parking, which is very rare for this expensive area of Kuala Lumpur. Tourists can visit this temple completely freely. In general, the place is definitely worth a look when you walk through Chinatown, but especially to get to the temple to walk around it for five minutes, it may not be worth it.
