Why Kuan Yin Temple is special ?
What to explore at Kuan Yin Temple?
The figure in the main prayer hall is that of Shakyamuni (Gautama Buddha); to his right is the statue of the South Sea Guanyin – a robed statue with a flashing halo. To the left of Shakyamuni is Qianshou (Thousand Arm Goddess of Mercy) Guanyin: this statue represents Kuan Yin’s compassionate side as the goddess purportedly has a ‘thousand hands and a thousand eyes’ to generously provide for devotees.
At prayer times (12:30 – 13:45), the chanting of ‘Namo Guanshiyin Bodhisattva’ from devotees and priests is a beautiful, melodious sound.
Join the beautiful chanting & recitation of the daily Ceremony Of Repentance Of the Great Compassion With A Thousand Hands and Thousand Eyes at the Dharma Realm Guan Yin Sagely Monastery
The monastery also has books on Quan Yin and Buddhism available in English for free to help spread the teachings of the Bodhisattva.
It is well worth it to experience the magical power of this ancient form of chanting and to feel the presence of Kuan Yin’s loving kindness within yourself.
How to get to Kuan Yin Temple?
Once you pass the vacant Kompleks Galleria, keep on the left lane.
When you come to a row of shop houses (some 350m from Kompleks Galleria), be on the look out for the temple (easily spotted with its green roofs). There’s a road just before the temple. Turn left into this road (Jalan Langgak Bukit). Park anywhere on the road side. Enter temple through the side door (also) at Jalan Langgak Bukit.

Tips for you
This was one of the 'must do's' on Tripadvisor and we are so pleased that we did. We have an awesome guide, Lulu, who was passionate about her city and this made the group of us enthusiastic about listening and learning about KL. We highly recommend this walking tour to get a 'feel' of KL and the different cultures that make up this amazing city
As a first time traveller to KL, I looked up things to do on Tripadvisor for the must do things in KL and this tour is at the top of the list. I was travelling alone and found this tour unbelievably fantastic. I was after the cultural experience of the city and this walk delivered evan more than I thought it might. You can walk around the city area without knowing what you are looking at, but this tour is so informative and the food so great that there is know way you could find these things on your own.It is a must do for the people that want to learn a little more about culture and food.CheersJamie
