Thean Hou Temple
If you get bored with tourist destinations in Kuala Lumpur, let’s try this alternative destination. Beautiful place, you could say the spiritual tourism also for Buddhists in Malaysia, namely Thean Hou Temple. Thean Hou Temple was built dedicated to the Goddess Tian Hou or The Heavenly Mother, which was built around 1989.
Frankly, this building is very typical with Chinese ornaments, a combination of modern and traditional. Especially during the Chinese New Year, it will be very beautiful because it is decorated with various lamps and other trinkets. But other than at Chinese New Year, you can see its beauty at night. The lights are beautiful …. illuminating every corner of Thean Hou Tample area.
When you enter on the front area, at the entrance you will be greeted by a statue of Shui Wei Sheng Niang, the Goddess of the Waterfront who will release water when visitors press the lever. Wow! Thean Hou Tample area is divided into three parts. Sebalah left used to worship the god Shui Wei Sheng Niang. Then on the right to worship the God of Guan Yin, The Goddess of Mercy, and the middle area serves to worship the God of Tian Hou.
There are some unique things in Thean Hou Tample, among them, it has a Chinese herbal medicine park, and there is a turtle pond there. You can see that from the opposite direction of this temple, there are many large statues of the gods, as well as a collection of twelve animals from Chinese astrology. Listen also, if Thean Hou Tample is used to ask luck about a mate, if you want to get married, you can register here!
Although it is located at the top of the Robson Height area, but Thean Hou Temple is very easy to visit. Especially if you want to come here using Monorail. All you have to do is get off at Tun Sambathan Station, then cross the Syed Putra road, and then you just walk up the Robson Height. But if you want to use online transportation services, from KL Sentral to Robson Height it only costs 6-7 RM (IDR 24,000).
If you are tired of taking pictures in this elegant place, and you want to look for a canteen because you are hungry or thirsty, you can go to the 1st floor.
And you also can shop for souvenirs typical of Thean Hou Tampe at the souvenir shop. Well, the second floor is usually used as a multipurpose hall.
