What you can expect

On this private tour, I can show you five temples that reflect the wide diversity and the close harmony of Taipei’s different cultures. You can see fine examples of Muslim, Buddhist, Taoist, and Hindu temples. I can point out the must see details of the images and carvings while telling you about their significance and symbolism.

I can tell you about the 228 Hindu idols on the five tiers of the entrance gate to the Sri Mahamarianman Hindu Temple. There’s also the hand-painted motifs depicting stories from early Hinduism. You’ll feel the wondrous joy of the open courtyard and symmetrical pavilions of the Chan She Shu Yuen Clan Association Temple. Inside, you can admire colorful paintings, intricate woodcarvings and beautiful ceramics, as well as scenes of gold-painted warriors, battling lions, and spectacular dragons.

You can also enjoy the breathtaking splendor of my country’s National Mosque which can host more than 15,000 worshipers. Just a few minutes away is the oldest Taoist temple in Kuala Lumpur: the Sin Sze Ya Chinese Temple often filled with devotees, the temple is also a cultural center for the Chinese community of the city.

During this tour we can stroll through the hustle and bustle of Chinatown, enjoy the beautiful gardens of our national mosque, and sample some tasty treats from the city’s street vendors. This tour is a discovery of Kuala Lumpur through its beautiful temples.

As a true local of Kuala Lumpur I can’t wait to share some unique insights and personal anecdotes with you! Also, ask me as many travel questions as you want. I can also advise on which eateries and bars that will best suit your preferences.
