Location & Travel Guide

Chinatown, Petaling Street

Chinatown, Petaling Street
Hotel Malaya is located right in the HEART of the exciting and vibrant Chinatown area in Petaling Street, the center of Kuala Lumpur’s original Chinatown. Petaling Street still maintains much of its traditional atmosphere, particularly so at night when hawkers and vendors spread their wares out onto the street, calling out to passer-bys to sample and purchase their wares. A favourite shopping area, it is possible to purchase almost anything in Chinatown, from gems and food, to clothings and shoes here. Whilst in Chinatown, enjoy the day & night market by just strolling and wander about, savouring and taking in the colourful sights, sounds, and energy that can only be found in Chinatown. A visit to Chinatown is a MUST to all visitors of Kuala Lumpur, and the best place to stay is Hotel Malaya, because we are situated right in the HEART of Chinatown.

Sri Mahamariamman Hindu Temple

The temple is an arresting sight, all the more for its incongruent setting in Chinatown. Built in 1873, it is the most elaborate Hindu temple in the country. Its gate tower is embellished with ornate sculptures of Hindu deities and its floors and walls marbled with Italian and Spanish tiles. This is the country’s oldest temple and it occupies an important place in Hindu religious life. During Thaipusam, this temple is one of the main venue of worship, attracting thousands of pilgrims and visitors. The silver chariot of Lord Murugan will also set off on it’s journey to Batu Caves from this temple. Located just 20 meters behind Hotel Malaya.

Central Market, Cultural Centre

Central Market is a cultural centre-cum-shopping mall and is one of the best places to witness first-hand Malaysian culture, arts and craft. A variety of goods are sold here, including handicrafts, souvenirs and traditional and contemporary art. Just outside Central Market is a riverside amphitheatre, venue for traditional dance displays, wayang kulit (shadow puppet) shows and more contemporary entertainment. Located only 30 meters from Hotel Malaya.

Chan See Shu Yuen Association, 1906

The building, constructed in 1906, is a fine example of Chinese temple architecture, with open courtyards, symmetrical pavilions and decorated roofs. The building has some of the richest examples of shek wan in Malaysia. Shek wan is a pottery style of roof and exterior wall decoration originating from southern China. Groups of colourful terracotta figures depict subjects from mythology and history. Located about 60 meters behind Hotel Malaya.

Kwong Siew Temple, 1886

A Taoist temple dedicated to the Chinese deity Kwan Ti (God of War and Literature). Two stone lions guard the entrance to this colourful building. At the lobby, the altar on the right is to Man Cheung (God of Examinations and Fate), and on the left, to the God for the Elderly. In the main hall at the rear, the central altar is devoted to Kwan Ti. Worshippers bring offerings of flowers and oranges, and light joss sticks or incense for the gods. Fortune Tellers are also on duty just before the main entrance, in case you wish to know your future fate. The temple is located just behind Hotel Malaya!
