Thean Hou Temple map, Kuala Lumpur

 

famous thean hou temple in malaysia during chinese new year cele

 

Thean Hou temple is possibly one of the most famous Temple around Kuala Lumpur. Located on top of Robson Hills near Federal Highway in between Midvalley and Kuala lumpur. Part of Kuala lumpur is visible from the top of this temple. Thean hou was built for the goddess Thean Hou ,The heavenly mother for Confucious religion.

I must say that this is one of the finest decorated temple around Klang Valley and one of local photographers favorite location. The decorations are quite detailed. You can observe the detail carvings on the wall, roof doors and various locations in this temple. This temple is at least 4 storey high. There is a canteen on the basement level and a hall on the first level. The most attractive location would need a bit of climb to the top of the temple. Do check a look at the Jade carved dragon on the top front of the temple.

Besides being a religious place for Taoist and Confucianist, this place is also popular for couples to register their marriage. Most popular for registrations during weekends and hot dates.

 

Photography

One of the best time to photograph this place would be during the Chinese New Year as this place will be decorated with lanterns.  Please bear in mind that the laterns are only available from 1st day to 15th of Chinese New Year ! So it’s good to be there on time.

There are no entrance fees as with all religious places in Malaysia however you will have to pay for parking fees.
