Fodor's Review

South from the center of town, the six-tiered landmark Chinese temple on top of Robson Hill is dedicated to the Heavenly Mother, Thean Hou. The decorative beams, giant murals, and domed ceilings were built over nearly 2 acres in 1987 from public donations from within the Malaysian Chinese community. Take in the Kuala Lumpur skyline from above, or pay a visit to the wishing well, medicinal herb garden, and several souvenir and food stalls.
