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.

The building looks impressive from the outside, but there actually isn't that much to look at. Also very little explanation of the symbolism. Free entry and some very good views of the city.

A very peaceful and serene place in the city,the temple is beautifully decorated and one can listen to nature whispering on your ears. Religious hymns and chimes make the ambience more and more blissful. A perfect getaway.

Nice place to visit for all, free entrance and nice to walk all around the temple. It was near empty when we went so we got nice pictures, especially from the top where we could see a large portion of the city.

Worth a look, but nothing spectacular, of mild interest only. Beautiful colours, but little information available.

I think about 20 rm from KLCC. Use a budget taxi and ask for a rough price first. Traffic might slow you down and make the journey more. You could always ask in your hotel how much their taxi's cost as most hotels use... More

Not easy for wheelchairs. To reach the big hall you need to go up stairs. I didn't see any lifts so I would say not very good for wheelchair users.
