Wat Chetawan Temple, Petaling Jaya (วัดเชตวัน)

Today is the 2nd day of Chinese New Year (农历新年). I visited the Wat Chetawan Temple with my family. This is the annual CNY temple visiting activities.
Wat Chetawan Temple is situated at 24, Jalan Pantai, Off Jalan Gasing, 46000 Petaling Jaya, Selangor. 
Wat Chetawan is a famous Buddhist Thai temple in Selangor, Malaysia. 
I was told the official name of this famous temple is Thai Buddhist Chetawan Temple. 
The Vihara (Viharn) which is the main shrine hall of this temple was completed in 1962.

I like it's authentic ancient Thai design and the architecture at this temple is beautiful.
 Wat Chetawan Temple is a beautiful temple and worth to visit.
