“Thai Temple build by Thai-Malaysian”

Wat Meh Liew Buddhist Temple
Reviewed 4 November 2012

Not very well known to many even among locals, this temple is located near Monorial KL (Titwangsa station) or Ampang Line (Titiwangsa station), once you got down from the station walk towards Hospital Tawakal (on the your left side is an abandoned flat) until you see a small alley on your left then turn left and walk little bit more and here you are, Wat Meh Liew. Named after the surname of the person who donated her land to build this temple, the word "Meh Liew" means "Mother Liew". This temple frequently visited by Thai who resided in Malaysia especially during weekend to perform prayer in group and bring their offering to the monks normally rice or other food. The prayer start as early as 11AM so come early if you wish to visit this temple and pray with the local together.

After prayer done, do stay back a little while as Thai had prepare food for the group to dine together but the monks will get to dine first as a sign of respect so do wait for about 20 minute and then it will be your turn. Don't be surprise that monks eat meat, as they are allowed to under Thai custom. The food prepared is originally Thai food so expect them to be spicy but there are some non spicy food as well.

They do celebrate Thai festival like their counter part in Thailand such as Songkran, do drop by if you happen to be in Malaysia during the Thai festive season.

Extra note: This temple take care of a number of dogs and cats, do bring along some food for dog and cat if it is convenient for you.
