Chan See Shu Yuen Temple Tours

Chan See Shu Yuen Temple
Chan See Shu Yuen Temple sits on Jalan Petaling in the heart of Kuala Lumpur’s Chinatown, and is one of the largest and oldest Buddhist temples in Malaysia. Built at the turn of the 20th century, this elaborate temple makes an impact upon first sight, with its intricately carved roof and terracotta friezes depicting mythological Chinese scenes. Inside are colorful paintings, wood carvings, and ceramic lamps. The interior of the main hall features pillars adorned with scenes of warriors battling lions, dragons, and other mythical creatures. Behind a glass wall, there are statues of the temple's three main deities, and above these, a mural of a bright golden sun.

Most tours of Kuala Lumpur include a trip to the city’s vibrant Chinatown, situated around Jalan Petaling. Choose from a range of options, including a half- or full-day walking tour of the city, with lunch and round-trip transportation.

Insider’s Tip: While you’re in the area, combine your visit to Chan See Shu Yuen with another of the city’s elaborate and iconic temples, such as the Hindu Sri Mahamariamman Temple, located in the neighboring street.

The culture of MALAYSIA draws on the varied cultures of the different people of Malaysia. The first people to live in the area were indigenous tribes that still remain; they were followed by the Malays, who moved there from mainland Asia in ancient times.
