About Travel to Kuala Lumpur
Kuala Lumpur is a large modern city with around 1.8 million permanent residents, best known for its large shopping centres and utlra modern suburban public transport system. Kuala Lumpur is also, however, a city of considerable culture, and a mix of cultural influences. Kuala Lumpur has long since left the British Empire but the influx of foreign people who came to the city at that time, particularly Indian and Chinese settlers, has left a lasting impression on the character of the city in terms of its culture, cuisine, architecture and religious beliefs. In particular, Kuala Lumpur has a diverse and interesting range of places of worship representing the cultural mix that is modern Malayisia.
Masjid Negara Malaysia
The Masjid Negara Malaysia, or National Mosque, is the largest and most important mosque in Kuala Lumpur. The Masjid Negara Malaysia was completed in 1965 and the brutal modernist architecture of this mosque is considered by many to have been inspired by the aspirations of the recently independent nation of Malaysia to look forward to a future of economic growth and technological development. The Masjid Negara Malaysia is open to visitors everyday of the week, although the times when non-Muslims can enter is restricted.
By way of complete contrast to the Masjid Negara Malaysia, the Batu Caves is a Hindu temple located in a series of caves slightly to the north of the city centre. The temple at the Batu Caves was established by wealthy Indian businessmen in 1890. The temple is dedicated to Lord Murugan, a 42 metre tall statue of which stands in front of a long staircase leading upto the largest of the caves, which is filled with Hindu shrines and statues. The Batu Caves are easy to reach via a regular, fast and cheap suburban train service that departs from Platform 3 of KL Sentral Station.
Sri Mahamariamman Temple
Established in 1873, the Sri Mahamariamman Temple is the oldest Hindu temple in Kuala Lumpur. The Sri Mahamariamman Temple is located in Kuala Lumpur’s China Town area, which is right in the centre of the city. The most striking feature of the Sri Mahamariamman Temple is its 22.9 metres tall gopuram tower that stands over the main entrance to the temple. The Sri Mahamariamman Temple is open to people of all faiths and charges no entrance fee, although you do need to pay a small fee to deposit your shoes at a booth near the entrance to the temple.
Guan Di Temple
Nearly opposite the Sri Mahamariamman Temple, on the same street, the Guan Di Temple is Kuala Lumpur’s most important Chinese Taoist Temple in Kuala Lumpur. Established in 1888, this temple is dedicated to Guan Di who was a famous general under the warlord Liu Bei in the early 3rd Century. Guan Di is often described as the Taoist ‘God of War’ and the large heavy replica spear and sword at the temple are, according to legend, endowed with magical powers which can be transferred to those worshippers strong enough to lift them three times. The opportunity to attempt to lift these magical weapons comes once a year at Chinese New Year.
