    Thean Hou Temple is one of the largest Chinese temples in South-East Asia. This temple is worshipped largely in coastal areas of China and is the protector of those who make their living from the sea.Upon reaching the temple shrine, you will be amazed by the dragon-inspired columns and pagoda rooftops. It is also a perfect place to relax and enjoy the panoramic view of the temple set against the Kuala Lumpur skyline

    Thean Hou Buddhist Temple is said to be the largest Buddhist temple. It is also near the Mid-Valley shopping centre. It is worth a visit for Buddhist. It is also a good spot to go for taking pictures.

    spela at the kuan yin fountain...

    Located on top of Robson Hill, off Jalan Syed Putra, the Thean Hou Temple is one of the largest Chinese temple in South East Asia...Opened in 1989, the temple was built with decorative beams, spectacular roofs, domed ceiling, calligraphic couplets, murals and elaborate embellishments reflecting the beauty of Chinese architecture...

    The temple has 4 levels with the main temple shrine located on the third floor... Inside the temple, the Thean Hou Goddess sits majestically between the Goddess of the Waterfront (or Swei Mei Goddess) and the Goddess of Mercy, know in Chinese as Kuan Yin...

    Outside on the right of the main temple is the Kuan Yin fountain where devotees and visitors can drink the water from the sprout held by Kuan Yin for blessings...

    Dragons at Thean Hou

    Took a while for us to find it and yes once we got there we didn't really know how to get back to the city centre again but it was definatly worth the dodgy bus ride with lots of scarey people. Thean Hou is huge and best seen at night when it's all light up by millions of fairy lights. You could nose into virtually every nook and cranny and explore everywhere in the temple. We were fortunate to stumble across some sort of celebration and saw a performance of chinese dragons. The views of KL from Thean Hou were amazing too. Don't forget to make your wish and receive your fortune.

    Like in other chinese temple you can see your future. In the pic my friend Angela reading her future paper.

    You want to know what I get:

    "A GOOD TURN DESERVES ANOTHER"
    "ONE WITH A HEART OF GOLD WITH ATTRACT PATRONS TO HELP HIM TO PROGRESS AND SUCCESS. IT WILL BE PLAIN SAILING FOR VENTURES EMBARKED UPON."

    GUIDELINE:

    HONOUR & MERIT: PROSPECTS OF ACHIVEMENT GOOD.

    MARRIAGE: PERFECT MARRIAGE.

    HEALTH: NEED PATRONAGE FOR COMPLETE RECOVERY

    CHANGE OF ABODE OR PROFESSION AND TRAVEL : GOOD

    All that tolds me my wishing paper... well... what can I say??
