Kuan Yin Temple

Asia is a place that boasts of incredible temples and in Malaysia, you can witness a few of them. The Kuan Yin Temple is one of the famous temples that attracts many tourists from all around the world. This temple was built by Chinese immigrants of ancient times to honour the Kuan Yin, the Goddess of Mercy.


Kampung Kling Mosque

Malaysia is home to some of the beautifully built mosques. The Kampung Kling is one of the ancient mosques in the country which was constructed by traders from India who were called Klings at the time. Initially, the place was constructed in wood which was later converted to bricks. The architecture of the establishment is an incredible blend of Arabic, Indian, Malay and Chinese influences.


Sri Mahamariamman Temple

Another religious site to visit when in Malaysia is the Sri Mahamariamman Temple situated in Kuala Lumpur. The Hindu temple is designed by the architecture of the Dravidians, and the temple is truly beautiful. The temple was established in the year of 1873. When in Kuala Lumpur, if you're looking for hotels near Petronas tower, then you can check out properties the likes of Silka Cheras for a good experience.


St. George Church

If you want to see an Anglican Church of the 19th century, then St George Church is the place to go to. The church was constructed by the British East India Company and is one of the few ancient churches in the Southeast Asian region. The church boasts of a great architectural feat as it has English Palladian, Georgian and Neo-classical architectural influences. Besides, there are incredible oil paintings to marvel at too.


Malacca Sultanate Palace

You can find the Malacca Sultanate Palace in the northern region of the Malacca city. The seven floors of the palace were ornately decorated. The stories were constructed with pillars made of wood where no nails were used. A year later after the sultan of the time came to power, the place was struck by a bolt of lightning which destroyed the place. Another place to visit is the Malacca Cultural museum which has displays of the various artefacts that were used during that time.


The A'Famosa Fortress

The A' Famosa used to be a fortress of the Portuguese and is one of the oldest forms of European architectural feats you can witness in the far East Asia and Southeast Asia that has survived for centuries. As such, a visit here is a must. The place was constructed in 1511 by the Portuguese people with the aim of building a shelter and collect rewards. As years passed by, the fortress housed a colony of people. Time after time, the fortress was captured by other nations, like the Dutch and the British.
