The grounds around the temple is decorated with different kind of animal statues.

The temple is very colorful and great for taking photos.

The place is very peaceful and quiet.

There are no entrance fees so this is a must see free attraction when in Kuala Lumpur.

Inside and out, it's a riot of color—lots of red, there is quite a lot of parking space for drivers. When one arrives, there is the courtyard and garden outside. The garden has statues of the animals of the zodiac and other deities. Then head up to the main temple on Level 2. A very good place for photos, if you want to try fortune telling you can go inside and put money in donation box then shuffle the sticks while clearing your mind. Then grab the whole bundle of sticks and drop them back into the container. The stick that sticks out carries your fortune.(choose the highest one!) You then match the number on the stick with the appropriate drawer.Each drawer contains slips of paper with your fortune told in Chinese and English

Thean Hou Temple is another a must see attraction in Kuala Lumpur. It is better to go there by taxi. The temple is on levels and details and symmetry in its construction are impressive. Behind it there are tens of stone figures of the Chinese people who made good deeds in the past. There are a lot of flowers and plants as well and figures from the Chinese horoscope outside of the temple.

The temple itself is a bit out of the way, up on a hill beside highways, but the breathtaking view of the city and the wonderful architecture of the temple makes it worth visiting.
