Today was our last day in Kuala Lumpur and what a wonderful few days we have had. Every day was leisurely and simple, the perfect way to have a vacation, and yet we still managed to see most of the amazing sites in the city. Interestingly, most of our wanderings took us away from the ultra popular tourist destinations, like the towers and shopping districts, and instead we found ourselves visiting mostly religious sites.
Getting to visit the temples, shrines and mosques was a huge privilege and delight for me. Never before have I been in a place where so many faiths live side by side. With so little exposure to religions other than Christianity, I have often wondered about what worship spaces look like. Reading about them doesn’t compare at all to seeing them.
My curiosity was met in full over the last few days. I loved walking through the quiet, airy halls of the National Mosque, absorbing the colors and incense of the Hindu temples, and admiring the dragons adorning the Chinese temples. Each faith has such unique and beautiful worship spaces and I feel lucky to have been able to visit them.
Kuala Lumpur has been a fantastic visit for us. If you ever have the chance to visit, I highly recommend it!
