Full description
Discover the home of Hindu shrines and various religious deities. Listen as your guide explains the Hindu roots of the nation and climb the 272 steps to the golden statue of Lord Murugan. Once at the top, go to Cathedral Cave to see the largest cave in the complex, and hear about the background to this most intricate of Hindu shrines. Visit Thean Hou Temple, a 6-tiered pagoda temple atop Robson Heights. Completed in 1987 and officially opened in 1989, it was built by the Hainanese community of Kuala Lumpur and is dedicated to the goddess Tian Hou. Continue to Chinatown and enjoy dozens of food stalls tended by Chinese, Indian, Malay and Bangladeshi traders. Watch as they serve up local favorites, such as curry noodles, Hokkien mee (a Fujian noodle dish), ikan bakar (barbecued fish) and asam laksa (a sour, fish and tamarind-based soup). Next, see the stunning National Mosque of Malaysia on 13-acres of beautiful gardens and designed it in the late 1950s as a symbol of the newly independent nation.

The Guide, Nantha, made the trip exceptional. He was jovial, very knowledgeable, very patient. He explained everything in detail and gave ample time to enjoy it. Excellent tour!! The guide gave us TWO hours of his time. I was coping with a foot injury and not once did he rush me, so I felt very comfortable! Great person. The fact that he was " eye candy" did not hurt one bit!

On time I was picked up at the hotel by a guide with a car. I had booked a group tour and to my very positive surprise found that there were only three of us. It was like a family outing. The guide was like a father to us and showed us many beautiful places. There was enough time everywhere to explore the area. The guide was very friendly, courteous and competent. He provided and entertained us with historical knowledge. It wasn't a hackneyed, boring tour, but on the contrary a fun, never boring day trip that I would do again and again. First and foremost, it is thanks to the guide that it was so nice. I have already experienced many other day tours, but thanks to the guide, this one certainly stands out from the crowd. Really recommend. Mr Ganesh, that was the name of the gentleman, is highly recommended! Even if it was only yesterday, I like to think back on it !.
