Indian temples are known for colour,design,commotion and a lot of character.This temple stands out for all of the above in addition to being uniquely exclusively in a sea of modernity.Good to sea,smell and hear what religion can be all about.

For visitors from India the place is extremely neat and tidy. For people of other countries who have not visited India and its temples Maha Mariammam Temple gives an idea of what awaits them in India. Very colourful artwork and sculptures. Place for contemplation on a hot afternoon. Place worth visiting and spending time. Just a short walk to Petaling... More

It is a very small temple and it takes only 30 minutes to see all of it, go there if it is in your way. The security of the temple ask us to take off our shoes before going inside and so we did, but it was really dirty inside and full of dust and our feet gets dirty. However,... More

As colourful as you can get. This typical design Hindu temple just down from the Toaist temple stands in defiance of the grubby street on which it stands. The usual Hindu deities, Ganesh, Shiva, Hanuman are all depicted. A place of genuine worship. Excellent.

This really nice little temple is hidden away down a little side street just around the corner from the central market and China town. If your in that area which you probably will be if you visit KL then you can get some great photos.

We visited this temple on the recommendation of a friend and were not disappointed. A beautifully decorated temple, we were lucky enough to visit when the small statues of Buddha were being ceremonially cleaned. The people cleaning were happy for us to take pictures and it was fascinating to watch. Definitely worth a visit, there's also a Chinese temple just... More

If you have never seen a Hindu Temple, then the facade will be a delight for you. It is a riot of colour and very impressive with lots of sculptural detail. You need to deposit your shoes at the counter for 0.20 MR before you go inside. For me, the external facade was more interesting than inside.

the temple is just a block away from Geo Hotel, so before taking the bus to Singapore, We spent few minutes at the temple. You have to get inside for a few ringgit ( I think it was 5RM) and must take your shoes out. The view outside is better, so never mind paying just to get inside.
