Directions to Thean Hou Temple. 

Getting to the location itself via monorail would need you to walk beside heavy traffic to the opening junction of the temple. Since the temple is located up on the hill, the hike up would be quite tiring for some and I would suggest you to use Grabcar or Uber to get to the destination. However, if you dont mind the walk up, it is much safer to do it in the morning or evening. I would not recommend for you to walk up there at night because it is rather quiet and dark.

Head to your nearest monorail station and board the train heading to KL Sental. Once you arrive at Tun Sambathan Station, cross the bridge and head towards Kuen Cheng School. The school will be on your left. You are now walking with the traffic on the other side of the road. Walk ahead until you reach a split road.  Head straight and you will see a signboard at the junction where it points you to the direction of the temple. Follow the sign and you will arrive at the temple.
