1. Visit a temple or mosque

A great way to get a glimpse into the multicultural aspect of Kuala Lumpur is to visit a mosque or a temple.

Batu Caves

The Batu Caves at Kuala Lumpur is one of the most popular Hindu shrines in Malaysia and outside India. You can see the tall shrine of Lord Murugan, the Hindu god of war, by the entrance. Every year, Muslim devotees celebrate the Thaipusam festival to honor Lord Murugan.

Visiting Batu Caves is one of the best free things to do in Kuala Lumpur with kids. It’s welcome to locals and tourists with plenty of sights to explore.

Aside from the towering golden Hindu statue, the first thing that will get your attention is the colorful stairs. Kids will appreciate the vibrant hues and popping rainbow colors of the stairs.

Plus, it’s good exercise as you climb 272 stairs. Stay cautious because you’ll most likely encounter monkeys as you go up the stairs, and they can be fierce and bite!

Inside Batu Caves are three more: Temple Cave, Dark Cave, and Ramayana Cave. Temple Cave is the largest among the three and is home to multiple Hindu shrines.

Jamek Mosque

Get a glimpse of Kuala Lumpur’s rich history and visit one of the oldest mosques dating back to the 1900s. Jamek Mosque is a more than a century-old building located at the city’s heart and between the rivers Klang and Gombak River.

Admission is free and open daily except on Islamic holy days and Fridays, the day of prayers for Islams. The best time to visit is before and after lunch because they close it during lunch hours for non-Muslim visitors.

When visiting the mosque, it’s important to dress accordingly and cover your shoulders and knees. They offer robes which are free of charge. For women, make sure to cover your hair as well. Lastly, remove your shoes upon entry.

Looking at the ancient architecture of Jamek Mosque, you can see how it’s inspired by various architectural styles: Moorish, Mughal, and Islamic.

Roam around the gardens surrounding the mosque and enjoy the peaceful and beautiful scenery of the River of Life. There’s also a Bazaar right at the entrance of Jamek Mosque where you can find little souvenirs at a cheap price.

National Mosque of Malaysia

The National Mosque of Malaysia, or Masjid Negara, is one of the best free attractions to visit in KL with kids. It’s the largest mosque in Kuala Lumpur and provides visitors with an educational and culturally enriching experience.

Masjid Negara allows you to explore Malaysia’s modernization through the influence of Indian and European architecture.

The mosque has impressive architectural features, and the one that stands out the most is the 16-pointed star-shaped roof. Meanwhile, the 240 feet (73 meters) tall minaret might’ve also caught your attention.

There’s also a spacious prayer hall, and by the front are columns uniquely spaced to copy the feeling of a coconut plantation. It’s an ideal spot to relax with the family, as the open galleries create a serene and cool atmosphere.

Another admirable feature of the mosque is the fountains and pools by the courtyard. This is meant to go with the rainfall theme.

Masjid Negara is free of admission and open to all visitors except for prayer times. Visitors are also expected to dress appropriately with their shoulders and knees covered.

Thean Hou Temple

Thean Hou Temple is a well-known Chinese temple and one of the most important ones in Southeast Asia. The temple’s architecture is just one of its notable things.

What makes it stand out is the combination of gold and red that you often see in many Chinese temples. This temple was built for the Chinese goddess of the sea, Mazu.

She also bears many names. For example, Thean Hou in Malaysian and Tianhou in Cantonese–Queen of Heaven.

Stroll around the temple’s 6 tiers, which follow a blend of Buddhism, Taoism, and Confucianism. Walking up the hill to reach Thean Hou Temple will be worthwhile, especially with the views you can get of the KL skyline from the top.

The temple is open to everyone and with free admission. Visit at nighttime and see the whole temple lit up. During Chinese New Year, hundreds of beautiful lanterns light up the place, and make sure to stay for the cultural shows.

Overall, it’s a fantastic place to visit with family. Admire statues of Buddhist gods and goddesses, explore the Chinese animal zodiac garden, and get a souvenir at the gift shop.

Another historic temple built in 1888 is Guan Di Temple. It’s a small Chinese temple in Chinatown dedicated to the legendary General Guan Di. By the entrance, there’s a Guan Dao weapon weighing 59kg which is believed to bring good luck if you lift it three times.

Also found in Chinatown, Chan See Shu Yuen Temple is proudly one of Malaysia’s largest and oldest Buddhist temples. It’s a one-of-a-kind experience as you’re presented with beautiful carvings about Chinese mythology, colorful paintings, and other art worth seeing inside the temple.

Sin Sze Si Ya Temple can be found at the Central Market. This is the oldest Taoist temple in KL, and it’s fairly small, unlike the other temples. It can be worth the visit if you’re just passing by the area.

5. Hike in the jungle at Taman Tugu in Lake Gardens

Ready to take on another family adventure? Go hiking at the 66-acre forest park Taman Tugu, located at the very heart of Kuala Lumpur.

This forest preserve offers enjoyable hike trails; we opted for the longer one but found it quite challenging. Many resources we read beforehand mentioned the trails were suited for all ages, but we wouldn’t recommend it for younger kids as there were a lot of steps to climb and descend. We ended up carrying our 3-year-old for certain sections of the trail.

Explore over 3 miles (5 km) of trails surrounded by towering indigenous trees. Resting areas with drinking water are available in the area, as well as toilet and shower facilities. Along the trail, you’ll also find swings where you can rest and take in nature.

A large rest area by the nursery parking lot can accommodate families with kids. It’s a perfect place for relaxation or resting after hiking. Food and drinks are available by the souvenir desk, or you can also take a five-minute walk to Taman Tugu Cafe.

Usually they have events happening during the weekend. When we went there, they had a yoga session and a small market when we returned to the resting area after the hike.

Entrance to Taman Tugu is free, and their operating hours are 7 am to 6.30 pm.

The best trails to take with kids are the green and yellow trails. Discover the wonders of the park and enjoy nature’s beauty while hiking.

The path is well maintained by CIMB Islamic, and plenty of benches and swings are at your service. Have fun spotting wildlife and wildflowers along the way. It’s also a pretty decent spot to go birdwatching.

If you’re hiking with older kids, you can go for a hike at the Bukit Kiara Park. Click here to find out more about hiking in Bukit Kiara Hill.
