About Guan Di Temple in Kuala Lumpur
The Guan Di Temple in Kuala Lumpur is a Chinese Taoist Temple dedicated to Guan Di, also known as Guan Ya. Guan Di was a military officer who served the Chinese warlord Liu Bei. Liu Bei went onto become the first Emperor of one of China’s newly established Three Kingdoms. Guan Di is a famous historical figure who features heavily in Chinese literature and art. Guan Di is also worshipped by followers of the Taoist religion as something akin to the patron saint of war and military skills. Indeed, Guan Di is often (and inaccurately) described at the Taoist God of War.
Despite being a relatively small temple in Kuala Lumpur, the Guan Di Temple is important to Taoists because the replica guan dao (spear) and guan jie (sword) kept inside the temple are believed to be endowed with magical powers by Guan Di himself. The legend is that by lifting these weapons a person will gain good fortune. The Guan Di Temple is very busy during Chinese New Year as the temple becomes a central point for the New Year’s celebrations for people of Chinese heritage (of whom there are many) living in and around Kuala Lumpur. The Guan Di Temple is open daily from 07:00 to 19:00 and admission is free.
