This peaceful place of worship hidden along the streets of Chinatown is Sin Sze Si Ya Temple. Built in 1864, it is the oldest Taoist temple in Kuala Lumpur.
The entrance is graced with two sedan chairs that are over 100 years old, and a memorial plaque that honours pioneers of the temple, such as its founder Kapitan Yap Ah Loy, Yap Ah Shak, Chan Sow Lin and Yap Kwan Seng.
Venture through this virtual tour to admire the intricate details and beautiful shrines. Unlike other temples that worship traditional Chinese deities, this religious site is dedicated to Sin Sze Ya and Si Sze Ya, who are the patron deities of Kuala Lumpur residents. It is also frequented by devotees who want their fortune told, and students who pray for good luck before their exams.
