Located to the southwest of the city, it is a popular tourist attraction. The 6-tiered Buddhist temple is also known as the Temple of the Goddess of Heaven, who is said to protect fishermen. There is also a shrine to Guan Yin, the Goddess of Mercy.

The tour is worthwhile for anyone who wants to have a close look at the different religions. Our guide Ramesh picked us up from the hotel and answered all our questions. He explained the different rituals and knew very well about the religions and temples. Ramesh told us again and again secret tips for Kuala Lumpur that are nowhere else to be found. The tour is worthwhile and is absolutely worth the price.

Mr Louis arrived on time but for some reason the company didn’t share the name of the hotel. Regardless he called me and we took off on our tour. Louis is very accommodating about taking me to places on time and with time to spare I got to try some local chocolate, tea, coffee and bought some surveyors. Thanks Louis and I enjoyed myself

The tour guide Kalai was friendly and informative. We visited among others, the Batu Caves, National Mosque, Thean Hou temple, China town market. At the end I enjoyed lunch in Little India. I recommend everyone to try out there the mango juice, masala tea and the traditional banana leaf. Very good experience.

Very great guide and driver in one person. Showed us really interesting sights. He responded to our individual wishes. I can only recommend.

Great tour with great guide. Very attentive and flexible
