  • This is one of the oldest Chinese temples in Malaysia in Chinatown. In Kanji, Aokumo-tei. The interior of the main hall built using the building materials carried from China was lacquered and gorgeous. The staff were very friendly and very nice.

  • Well maintained and awesome building. As I travel for Cultural, I never regret of putting this in my list! =)
  • Quite beautiful and authentic. Well maintained and welcoming to visitors. Also tasteful, which cannot be said of many Chinese-style temples in SE Asia.
