Guan Di Temple

Guan Di Temple is a beautiful Taoist Chinese Temple located at Jalan Tun H. S. Lee and it's a about 5 minutes walking distance from Chinatown (Petaling Street). 

The origin of this temple comes from one of China’s greatest warriors known as General Kwan, Guan Di or Guan Yu. He was given the title of ‘God of War’ and many had chosen to worship him due to his excellent fighting and war skills.

On the altar in front of the statue of Guan Di (also called Guan Gong or Guan Yu) is guan dao and guan jie – a famous sword and spear. Deified in the Sui Dynasty (580-618 AD), devotees believe that Guandi’s weapons have special powers and that they will be blessed by ‘touching’ or ‘lifting’ the 59kg copper guan dao three times.

Location : 168, Jalan Tun H S Lee, City Centre, 50000 Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
