Thean Hou Temple. A Chinese Place for Heavenly Mother.

Thean Hou Temple is the largest Chinese temple in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. It was opened in 1989 and located at the top of Robinson’s Hill offering an excellent view of the vibrant city of Kuala Lumpur. The place is a popular destination specially during Chinese New Year.

This six-tiered temple is dedicated to the Heavenly Mother, Thean Hou. The main hall display the statue of the Heavenly Mother together with Kuan Yin (the Buddhist goddess of mercy) on her right and Shuiwei Shengniang (the goddess of the waterfront) to her left.

_MG_9137There is no public bus going up there so the best way going there is taking a cab from KL Sentral. Or you can take the monorail from KL Sentral and drop at Tun Sambanthan station then cross Jalan Syed Putra and walk up to the hill. I visited this place on Chinese New Year 2014 together with ohotogrophy club buddies in Scope International Photog Club. _MG_8940_MG_8952_MG_9051_MG_9067_MG_9121_MG_9130_MG_8989_MG_8995_MG_8996_MG_8998_MG_9002_MG_9005

    1. Oh that’s good to hear. You’ll be touring here? KL airport is quiet far from the city. It’s 1 hr travel by bus. The temple is just within the city. It’s in my blog already how to go there from KL Sentral train station.
