When we were residing in KL, we do weekly visits for our ritual prayers. Since we are residing overseas, whenever we pop into KL, this is our top priority temple to visit

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.

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)
