this temple is still in duty and has pilgrims visiting it, there are lots of statues in it. if there is a ceremony going on, it is very noisy and you won't be able to event concentrate on what you see. this temple is in an old place in the city, so I recommend visiting it not in those times...

You leave your shoes at the door and then wander around this temple. Lovely and quiet after visiting the hustle and bustle of Chinatown, yet easily accessed.

One of the well maintained temples I have had occasion to visit in a long time. Good darshan too. Wish all temples are maintained like this.

... very bad reception. The temple is beautiful and colorful. Unfortunately, the people here are quite rude when they want you to put off your shoes. I wanted to do it in front on the temple as I did not notice the racks for it.

This was my first Hindu temple and was thrilled with it's beauty. Hint - you will be asked to put your shoes in with an attendant and it will cost you 20 ringgit to get them out of hock.

Took several pictures of the statues. Was told not to wear shoes inside the temple and had to pay a few cents just to get inside. Worth it though.

Visited the temple on our way to Chinatown markets. Have to leave your shoes outside however there's someone there to keep an eye on them for you for a couple of ringits. Also need to make sure your shoulders and knees are covered (both male and female). Inside was lovely and it was great to wander around and view the... More

One of the old temples with fantastic architecture and divine grace! The temple hosts weddings and festivals and is very well maintained at the heart of the city KL!
