Owner description: The Hindu deity Vinoyagar, recognizable by the elephant head, is also known as Ganesg. This temple’s colorful exterior is at odds with its gloomy interior.

Located mid-way along Temple Street (Jalan Tokong), the Sri Pogyatha Vinayagar Temple, is said to be the oldest Hindu temple in Malacca. It dates back to the late 1700s, when most of Chinatown was constructed and celebrates the elephant-headed god Ganesh. Include as part of your walking tour of Chinatown.

Sri Pogyatha Vinoyagar Moorthi Temple is a beautiful spot next to the historic mosque and the Chinese temple, all in Harmony Street.

This temple is the Oldest Hindhu Temple in Malaysia. Very calm and peaceful feeling when you visit this temple during praying session.

This temple is open in the morning, closing at 11:30 a.m. and then reopening again after 6:00 p.m. until 8:00 p.m. -- if my memory serves me. When I went, there were a few priests or attendants there, another couple visiting, but that was about it. It is a very nice temple -- and it is interesting to compare/contrast its structure with the other two religious building on the same street. Note with this temple you enter, and the most important part is directly ahead of you in a sanctuary (not for non-Hindus to enter, I think, although they word it more diplomatically) and then a walk around area surrounding the sanctuary where there are various sub-temples for you to visit. This structure is typical of Jain and Hindu temples that I have seen in India.

It felt very peaceful to be there. If you have an interest in Hinduism or architecture, I urge you to go. Take off your shoes before entering.
