This ornate Chinese temple dedicated to the Queen of Heaven, Thean Hou, protectorate of people who make their living from the sea. The temple borrows from Buddhist, Taoist and Confucian traditions. Some visitors believe the panoramic views of KL alone make the trip up the hill worthwhile.

Short visit to the temple and it's was very nice to see the 12 types of calendar animals. Was hoping to see the lit lanterns in the temple but it was turned off. Nevertheless an interesting place for a quick visit.

Yes it is free, but take some change to offer a donation for prayer. There aren't clothing restrictions as per say, but it is considerate to not wear "short shorts" or singlets. Hope you have a wonderful time visiting.
