One of the temples that you can visit near the famous Jalan Petaling in Kuala Lumpur's Chinatown is the Guan Di Temple. These temples are strikingly decorated, with dragons on the roofs, deities and mythological figures on the walls and columns. The entrance is filled with coils of incense hanging from the ceiling. Be careful if you try to take a photo - I saw one guy looking up to aim his camera, only to have ash drop in his eye. The temple is dedicated to Guan Di, the god of war, and people bring their offerings for protection and security. It was built in 1888, and is open daily from 7 to 5.
