Thean Hou Buddhist Temple
Sitting atop a hill overlooking Jalan Syed Putra is the imposing Thean Hou Temple. This magnificent religious monument is one of the largest Chinese temples outside the Orient. The grandiose building was designed in an interesting combination of modern architecture and authentic traditional design. Prominent features of the structure include imposing pillars, spectacular roofs, ornate carvings, and elaborate embellishments.
The Thean Hou temple is truly a gem of an architecture as it combines the various influences, and blending them seamlessly. While calling it a Buddist or Taoist site would not be entirely accurate but it is definitely a quiet and natural blend of the two. Everyone should visit this temple, irregadless of your religious afliation but please be mindful to dress modestly for both the ladies and gents. You wouldn't like it if someone walks into a church or a mosque in a tank top or a pair of shorts too...
