Guandi Temple- One of the most impressive and ancient Chinese Temple in Kuala Lumpur
Once of the most impressive Chinese temples in Kuala Lumpur is the Guan Di Temple (also known as Kuan Ti Temple); a beautiful Taoist temple. Tourists that visit Chinatown can easily walk to Jalan Tun H. S. Lee, a small street parallel to the busy Pedaling Street. This is where the legendary 59kg copper Guan Dao is located. Many have been continuously visiting this temple as they believed that the sword possesses a special power to bless and protect a person if that person touches or lifts it. Some even believe that it has an inner force that can magically turn a person’s luck around as well. When visiting Kular Lampur, the Aloft Kuala Lumpur Sentral is and ideal option to consider and is one of the best hotels in Kuala Lumpur City. Aloft Kuala Lumpur Sentral is situated in the central business district and is within easy reach of the Kular Lampur Airport.
Upon entering the temple, tourists will be greeted with two huge fierce-looking statues of a general. Guan Di temple is unique because the God of War, Guan Ping and Zhou Cang statues are all made out of wood. There is also an altar not known by many to exist as it is hidden at the left side of the corridor. The adventurous can explore this path and be rewarded by a few more amazing photo shots. Best time of the day to visit the temple is in the early morning. Not only is it much quieter in and around the temple, guests will also witness many Chinese locals burning incense and praying to a prosperous future. The best time of the year to visit the temple is around Chinese New Year.
