There wasn't much to see in this temple. It would have helped if there was staff around to help understand the significance of the temple. Maybe if you go early in the morning you may find more locals there.

Same as most small Chinese temples. Small but very ornate with lots of incense burning Easy to get to from the central markets. But you may need a map to find streets.

Another nice temple to visit in KL. Peaceful, interesting and somewhat mysterious. Worth a look for sure.
