The Wildflower 

scattered by the wind

Broken and shattered

Free and untamed

In the gardens of wildflowers

Through dirt and soil

Sun and rain

It holds its domain

Other flowers viewed her as a rose

Beautiful and yet painful to hold

Some golden daffodils dance

And fluttered miraculous

To win the wildflower

The wildflower grew 

in all the gardens

Where no flowers thought it would

The aching hopes

Hurting memories

Eternity for infinity

The wildflower just blooms

Grow between the hollows

Flourish

Deep in the roots

And keep the light

From the broken earth

Able to weather

Knowing that it will soon wither

Selangor is the most-developed State and it is one of the most ethnically diverse cities in Malaysia. Multiple religions and cultures exist in this State; hence it is to a no-surprise, Selangor’s temples are ones most-visited by domestic and international travellers. If you do not want to leave it to chance, then you should get planning on your visit to the best temples in Selangor whether it be for religious reasons or just to attain some spiritual inspiration. Most of them are also beautiful architectural landmarks. If you want to pay a visit to these holy places, it is advised to dress properly out of respect.


The best places to visit during Chinese New Year are always temples as they will come alive during this festive occasion. In addition, Chinese New Year 2021's SOPs are out; - It is permitted to perform prayers for 30-minutes at the temple within 10-km radius with a limit of 30 persons at a time on three dates; February 11th, 12th and 19th. As such, here we focus on the mysterious and beautiful Buddhist temples of the State and which ones every traveller should seek out later.

 

1)     Qi Jian Xian Shi Fo Zu Gu Miao Temple, Kuala Selangor

Qi Jian Xian Shi Fo Zu Gu Miao Temple, is located at Pasir Penambang, Kuala Selangor. It is located near the Kuala Selangor river and a popular destination for tourists. Dedicated to Lord Buddha, this two-level temple is unique as its upper level consists of a man-made cave with overhanging stalactites. The deity Di Zang Wang Pu Sa is worshipped here. The two-storey temple has a pair of grand staircases leading up to the top floor. The main prayer hall is on the ground floor, while upstairs is created to mimic a mountainous scene.

 

2)     Fo Guang Shan (FGS) Dong Zen Temple, Jenjarom Kuala Langat

Every Chinese New Year, Jenjarom town is lit up with magnificent lanterns at the Fo Guang Shan (FGS) Dong Zen Temple. The temple has been running an annual CNY Lantern and Flora Festival for more than a decade and it has become somewhat a staple on Selangor’s events calendar, thanks to its display of giant light instalments.

 

The free-admission festival attracts nearly a million visitors yearly. But a visit to the venue should not be just a once-a-year affair, not when the temple itself is a nice year-long attraction in the quaint district of Kuala Langat. The grounds of the temple are home to many beautiful buildings and decorations. Take a stroll along Lumbini Garden to appreciate the abundance of colourful flowers. Over at 33 Avalokitesvara Bodhisattva Street, take in sculptures that embody various good virtues.

 

3)     Kuan Yin Temple, Klang

Built in 1892, Kuan Yin Temple is one of the oldest Chinese Temples in the royal city in Klang. As Fujian Chinese who fled their hometown settled in Klang to fill labor shortages in tin mines, plantations, and railway constructions back in the days, they brought along their Gods and Goddesses with them to build a temple in their new hometown. That is how this temple came into existence. It was nearly faced demolition until the Sultan of Selangor declared it as State’s heritage site. Located at the bustling Jalan Raya Barat, it is now a place of worship for the Chinese community in Klang. Immerse yourself in artistic and heritage galore the moment you get into its majestic entrance. The best is yet to come, get in deeper and you will definitely be amazed with the symphony of artistic and faith. Come and see it for yourself!

 

4)     Nan Tian Temple, Sekinchan

Nan Tian Temple (Nine Emperor Gods Temple) in Sekinchan, a Chinese temple located in the middle of Sekinchan paddy field. Nan Tian Temple was established in year 1984 and extended in year 2004 into today’s scale. Nan Tian Temple become the landmark of Site A, Sekinchan. Every 1st to 9th of the 9th month of the Lunar Calendar, the worshipers celebrate the birthday of Nine Emperor Gods for a period of ten days. This is the most important religious event in Sekinchan. The two main industries in Sekinchan are farming and fishing; on which both are highly depending on the weather.

 

5)     Guan Yin Gu See Temple, Kuala Kubu Bharu

Located at the peak of a hill, it offers mesmerizing views from the top with a statue of Guan Yin Bodhisattva overlooking the nearby village. Historical architecture in Kuala Kubu Bharu includes traditional shophouses spanning from the 1920s to the 1980s, as well as old fire and railway stations. A Buddhist temple (Guan Yin Ge Temple) that survived the flood was refurbished in the 1980s, while Cecil Ranking's grave is located within the compound of MRSM Kuala Kubu Bharu and serves as a monument to the 1883 flood.

 

Tourism Selangor wishes Happy Lunar New Year’s Day to everyone who celebrates it in Malaysia, especially Selangor. May this new year be filled with happiness, prosperity, good health and success. In rise of Covid-19 cases, it is best to maintain new norm practices based on the SOPs.
