The details in the roof is beautiful and is worth a few photos. However, I don't think one will spend more than ten minutes here so I think it's better to combine with a trip to Chinatown and not make this a sole destination.

We visited here on a walk through Chinatown and will say it was one of the less impressive temples we visited on the day. Worth sticking your head into because it's free if you're near the area - but in terms of pretty temples there...More

An interesting building, with free entry. A bit of a building site when we visited, but still calm and a nice stop on any tour of KL.

I don't think was anything great I have seen many other temples and this one was a common one. Anyway I suggest you to go if you have never seen such kind of temple s before.
