This is the most elaborate Hindu temple in KL, and well worth a visit. You have to remove your shoes for the visit, and the stone flooring can be hard on the feet as well as really hot if you haven't got socks! but the religious artwork is stunningly detailed. A must-see, very close to several Chinese temples, so it's... More

This Hindu temple is very at old Kuala Lumpur area with many others interesting buildings nearby as Masjid Jamek, Jalan Petaling or Central Market. The entrance portic is really a masterpiece to be admired.

This is a lovely place, but can be tricky to find (Please read the date as building's may have changed Colour, name or not here ) If you leave the train at "pasar seni", you should see the hotel Geo, which is a huge Brown building. If this is the back of the hotel go round the front and across... More

We were just passing by heading for the light rail so were amazed when we came upon this temple. Stunning building and the noise coming from within from musicians playing was like nothing I've heard before in my life!

This shrine was built with the best of dedication imported from Chennai and Tamil nadu and is one of the oldest in KL. Conveniently located near to the central market, this temple stands tall and vivid. Definitely worth a visit and the market around the corner with street food of different tastes would satisfy your taste buds.
