Recently visited here on a trip to KL and was worth the diversion to come and visit if you have never been to a Hindu temple before. Was very colourful and whilst we were there the prayer had started so was lots of noise and activity! Remember if you do visit to bring some small change as you need to... More

Beautiful and colorful sculptures. Please adhere to the rules and regulations of the temple. No foot ware allowed, photography allowed in certain areas only. Please do wear clothing that covers your knees. If you don't have, you can purchase a "Sarong" just at the counter outside the temple.

If you've never been to a Hindu temple before, then this is a good place to visit. As It's in the heart of the city, they have a shoe rack service (for 20 cents) and it's a clean temple to visit. However, like all the temples that i've been to in Asia, no one will offer to explain the rituals... More

We had a hard time finding this place. It's way more impressive on the inside. Before going in, you have to leave your shoes outside. There's a small counter where you can leave your shoes, facing the temple entrance it's in your left side. The place is more than impressive,i'd say it's a must see attraction when you're in Kuala...

The temple has got amazing Architecture, same as in India. Inside the temple, you will feel that you have been taken back in time to a place which is quite, has got good vibes and also far from the hustles of everyday traffic in the center of KL

A beautiful building, even if you are not really aware of Hindu-related themes I'm sure you can enjoy the craftsmanship it took to create this temple. Very close to a lot of markets/shops.

The Sri Maha Mariamman Temple is a historic tamil temple located very near to the centre of Chinatown. The architecture is truly stunning and well worth the visit to appreciate the cultural and religious diversity that makes up modern Malaysia, especially from the fact that it is located right in the centre of the city and opposite a large and...
