A very big temple and a rather old one built in the early 1900s. Kept very clean and well maintained.

The shape of this temple immediately recalls you the temples you can find in Southern India, in cities like Madras/Chennai, but this one is well-hidden in KL. When you get there, you will feel like you are transported to India. A must-visit to learn about one of Malaysia’s communities!

We met this place coincidently when we walked our way to bunn choon restarant. Quiet during pandemic. I believe it would be a busy place before the locked down.

This colourful temple is the oldest Hindu temple in Kuala Lumpur. There is an amazingly beautifully ornate entranceway and many intricate carvings and statues inside the temple, including an impressive mural wall. This is a very peaceful temple in the middle of a very busy district of Kuala Lumpur - 4 minutes walk from Petaling Street Market.

I was wearing baggy shorts to the knee and still had to wrap around a sarong around my waist to my feet. Shoulders and knees must be covered by women to enter. Shoes have to be taken off to the left of the entranceway, for a fee of 20cents each. Free entry to the temple.

Tourists are made to feel very welcome, although this is also an active temple with many worshipers there when we visited. Recommended to visit both during the day and also at night when the temple is lit up with colourful lights. We spent around 20 minutes here to having a good look around and taking lots of photos. Unfortunately, there is very little information available about the temple. It was however, generally well maintained and very beautiful.

Very colorful and huge. There was a wedding going on so it felt a bit intrusive to be exploring and taking pictures.

A beautiful temple to visit in the Chinatown area. The entrance architecture is amazing. People at the temple were very welcoming to us.

Very welcoming people. Nice to know other cultures. Very interesting. It is a functional temple, people are worshipping and at the same time, tourists are visiting.

This temple is in all the guidebooks so we popped in for ten minutes. It was quiet when we came and to be honest the Hindu practices completely confuse us! The recently restored carvings are colourful and quite humorous and the atmosphere is reverent and relaxed.

The shoe room is to the left of the entrance. The temple itself is beautifully decorated and peaceful.
