It was an unplanned visit to Thean Hou temple (天后宫) last weekend, a detour after dinner nearby at Seputeh.
Thean Hou temple is located on top of Robson Hill off Jalan Syed Putra. The steep slope uphill drive to the temple brings back fond memories of my teenage years. I reminisced the days when my elder brother’s car was too old for such uphill task (no pun intended).
Magnificent. It’s how I would describe Thean Hou temple.
As it is nearing Chinese New Year, there are sea of red lanterns hung up everywhere, and also more in progress. It was incredibly beautiful, as the temple was covered with lighted lanterns. I am sure that the scenery will be even more jaw-dropping during Chinese New Year!
Come pray for everything-good in the Year of Monkey!
Or, you can also participate in Thean Hou temple’s activities as below:
- Year of Monkey Lantern Festival (7/2-9/3/2016) : Lantern devotion – light an illuminating lantern for yourself and others during Chinese New Year with a prayer and a wish, at RM 48 (Individual) and RM 88 (Family)
- Ushering The God of Prosperity (7/2/2016, 10pm) : Devotion – grand prayer ceremony at RM 68/set.
There is a stair lift provided at Thean Hou temple, for lifting people up and down stairs. Such a thoughtful amenity provided for elderly and disable people. Thumbs up!!
