One of the oldest and most revered places of worship in Kuala Lumpur, the Kuan Ti or Guan Di temple is dedicated to Guandi- the Taoist God of war and literature. Incepted in 1888, this 124 -year old holy shrine is located along Jalan Tun H S Lee, City Centre. Along with a statue of Kuan Ti on the main altar, this temple houses manifestations of Guan Yin (Goddess of mercy), Wel Chong (God of learning and education), and Choy Sun (God of prosperity).
Painted in gold, the altar of Guan Di includes the Guan Dao (sword) and Guan Jie (spear) of Guan Di. The devotees believe that these weapons have special powers that will bless them if they touch or try to raise them. Besides the altar, you will find two wooden statues each of Guan Ping and Zhou Cang who were Guandi’s attendants. This sacred shrine is guarded by two lions since the Chinese believe that lions keep off the negative energy and protect from viciousness. On the left side, you will find a male lion and on the right, a female lion is holding a baby lion. Dragons are attractively carved on the temple roof and they are beautifully coiled around the two main pillars constructed in the interior of the temple.
