A place with high vibrations

As soon as you enter the temple you will start feeling the positive vibrations around, especially during early morning. This is a must visit spot for a spiritual explorer.

Skip Chinatown and go directly to this temple. I didn't expect such a lovely place in the middle of the city. Prepare to dress appropriately.

This is a wonderful temple. The “prasadam” is delicious. I recommend visiting the place with such a positive Hindu energy. The devotees are full of energy and enthusiasm. Everyone here is extremely kind and welcoming. Very good and bless place to be ..

Beautiful Hindu temple very close to Pasar Seni LRT station. You can leave your shoes just for 20cent in a safe place. I advise you to go in the morning where you can observe the religious ceremony, how they pray etc.

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

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.
