I visited this temple along with a friend and it is located near the Jalan Petaling area. It has a very small entrance. Students come here to pray before their exams for good luck. It is very tranquil and is filled with incense stick smell.

The main entrance off the Main Street is via a very very narrow frontage. But once go you down this small passageway a delight is in hand. Very ornate and decorated inside. Well worth a photo stop.

Being one of the oldest chinese temple in the city, it is extremely fascinating. Clicking pictures is allowed and the staff there is very friendly. She explained the significance of the temple and the various idols of the gods in it.

A beautiful temple, serving the downtown Chinese community. The location is slightly hidden from view, located near Central Market and Petaling Street.

Very beautiful and very popular. A must visit if you are in the China town area. 2 minutes walk from the metro stations and train lines. Donations can be made so you can place an incense offering. Suitable for the disabled and buggies.

I have not talked to the fortune tellers in the temple. But most of the people in KL can speak English very fluently. Really a nice place. We were surprised to see that many spoke Hindi also in the temple.
