Chinese New Year at Tien Hou Temple

Red lanterns for this Chinese New Year




One of the main ritual for my family during the first day of Chinese New Year is to pay a visit to Tien Hou (Heavenly Empress) temple. Tien Hou temple is located near to Taman Seputeh, Kuala lumpur. At the hill top of Taman Seputeh, Tien Hou temple allows visitors to get a good panoramic view of Kuala Lumpur.

Built at 1981, Tien Hou Temple is a building which has the richest features of Chinese Architectural beauty in Malaysia. Its main attractions include Balustrades, Decorative Beams, Domed Ceiling, Eaves Cornice, Column Beam Angle, Caligraphic Couplets, Murals, Chinese Medicinal Herbs Garden, Wishing Well, Souvenir Stalls and Food Stalls etc.

Tien Hou temple is built by the Selangor & Federal Territory Hainan Association of Malaysia. The temple belongs to the Chinese community in the country and public donations have enabled the famous tourist destination to develop by leaps and bounds.

Beautiful pictures, simply beautiful. I wish I could produce such vivid-coloured, sharp shots. What camera do you use?
