Of course you have to get rid of your shoes to enter it, and it is worth to do so for - like me - taking some pictures and getting an impression about another culture and about history.

Very nice place to see! Free access as I remember! Must pass by when in China town. You have to remove your shoes and cover yourself. Needs no more than 30 min

There were preparations for a wedding going on so the temple was buzzing with activity. We were made to feel welcome as we looked round despite the imminent arrival of the bride.

No entry fee required. But you'll have to take off your shoe. There's a shoe safe keeper counter on the left before the entrance door. You'll just have to pay about MYR0.20/pair (if I'm not mistaken)
