This first hill was done. The weather was warm. Time to get into some shades and built into a route was one such respite - the little known Bukit Ceylon Chinese Temple.

Unfortunately there were not much detail about the place, but I was taken aback by some of the features. The main one being the fact that they had a statue devoted to Malay deity complete with tengkolok and kopiah.

 The famous Malay deity. Complete with tengkolok and songkok.

Part of the Taoist culture was to respect the people that had been there first. The Mackay had lived in KL much earlier than them, so when they first arrived from China, they felt oblige to pay homage to the local as a show of respect. As part of their prayers, the deity was offered Mackay food. We were talking pulut lining and the likes. According to the keeper, even the meet in the offering were from Halal sources. Interesting.

We stayed for some time having a chat there. The nice breeze contrasting with the dazzling sunlight made you want to just sit there and chill. A glass of iced tea would have complimented nicely ...
