Great place to visit! Not only really interesting, but also very beautiful and so full of details. When I went there, I was lucky to watch part of a religious ceremony and they were so kind they welcomed us to be part of it.

Before entering you must remove your shoes & hand them to the person responsible for keeping them until you are done with your visit. Inside it is very clean, ornate, and you will notice there are people there on a spiritual visit so please remember at all times to show respect--no laughing loudly or shouting (sadly this was what I...

Well run and clean place. Experience hindu worship rituals ( few times a day). Facade is small so easy to miss from the street.

This was also part of the hop-on hop-off tour. The design of the temple was very ornate and a great way for photo ops. The entire temple could be viewed best when you are on top of the monorail though.

I wasn't very impressive with the Sri Mahamariamman. Sure, it is nice, the details are amazing, but it is very small. You might even missed it if you walking on the street. We almost did! But since it is close to the central market, it is worth a quick visit.

Looks well maintained, the colors of the building is colorful. The Sri Mahamariamman temple in Kuala Lumpur is one of the most popular temples among worshippers and visitors alike. The Sri Mahamariamman temple was built in year 1873 by K. Thamboosamy Pillai but was only opened to the public in the 1920s. After withstanding time and elements, the original structure... More

The Sri Mahamariamman Temple is worth a stop if you are in Kuala Lumpur since this is the place of worship for the Hindu population in the city. The temple is quite simple and compact. The believers use the temple in their daily ritual hence visitors should respect the place and tour the temple with minimum disturbance. In order to... More

My kids usually wanted physical activities on our travels. Being raised in a Christian country, I want to expose them to other religions of our neighboring countries in Asia so that they will learn how to respect and accept others for what they believe in. This place is so easy to find near an LRT station, Petaling Street or what... More

This temple is located in China Town and a must see. The temple is beautiful from the outside and the inside, very well kept, clean, and peaceful. Remember to dress accordingly (ie. no shorts), and take your shoes off before entering!
