The temple itself is a stunning piece of architecture, but it's the urban surrounding that makes this place so special. As many people have already mentioned, this temple is located--almost "hidden"--in the middle of the city and is a part of everyday lives of people living around. The temple is small, and a short visit will suffice, but it's definitely... More

we walked in just as the temple was opening at 6am, it doesn't consume any time from you just a must visit temple and we got to watch the prayer ceremony with all their music and drums... note: you need to check in your shoes at the entrance as you can't wear them inside nor can you even put them...

Very interesting Hindu temple. The entry way is incredible. You can not wear shoes inside. You have to check them at the entrance for the few of a few cents.

Tamil is one of the Official languages of Malaysia. In every historical site, the Indian connection is generally not brought out or explained. This temple is in classic south Indian style near china town. Beautifully maintained.

My husband and I accidentally came across this temple when wondering through China Town. What a delight! Everyone was so friendly and a ceremony just started when we walked in so we got to witness our first ever Indian temple - the drums, the music and atmosphere were amazing. Highly recommended.

This temple has beautiful architecture, statues and paintings. Since it's a religious place, you have to take your shoes off outside the temple. There were a couple of elderly ladies who kept an eye on my shoes. I'm not sure if I was supposed to tip them though. Get ready to have dirty feet/socks after you enter. It's not a... More

This is a small and clean south indian temple which is at a 3-4 min walk from Pasar Seni Station. There's a shoe stand oustide the temple where one can keep his shoes and the people at the shoe stall were very helpful and guided us on the shortest route to where we were headed next. We reached the temple... More
