Kuala Lumpur Jalan Ampang | Po Ling Chinese Temple

While I was strolling along Jalan Ampang in the bustling cosmopolitan of Kuala Lumpur, I passed by a relatively huge Chinese temple. Located almost next to Wisma MCA, Po Ling Temple is just a stone throw from KLCC Petronas TwinTowers.
Laughing Buddha right at the entrance to welcome you!
After sneaking in and paying respect, I found out it is a Mahayana Buddhist Temple. The Laughing Buddha (or Maitreya Bodhisattva) in sitting posture is placed right at its entrance with a smiling face to welcome you. As I walked in, the devotees were praying to Goddness of Mercy (Guan Yin).
The facade of temple. Anybody can translate this?
The exterior building looks relatively new and well-kept owing some restoration or renovation work. I believe Po Ling Temple must has been there for quite a long time ago otherwise there is a slim chance to occupy such a strategic spot in KL Golden Triangle – one of the highest demanded area. I was browsing to check out the history about this temple but there is not much information available.
. Spacious and well-kept compound
For the devotees, Po Ling Temple is regarded as a sacred place to pray for their wishes to be granted. Based on a true life account, two wishes came true for my sis’s friend.

May you be blessed and hope your wishes will be granted too!

Wishing all beings be well and happy!
