This temple is on the same street as the Chinese Cheng Hoong Teng temple and the Kampung Kling mosque. It is easy to spot the temple with its decorated yellow walls. It’s a small temple with fewer colors than other Hindu temples that I saw before. It is dedicated to Lord Ganesha. We only saw the outside and took a... More

This temple is not as large, exotic or colourful as many Hindu temples, but it's old, has a peaceful, tranquil atmosphere and is a place for Hindus more than curious tourists. We did prayers there and that was fine; it's what it's there for.

Situated along the street where all 3 main places of worship of Hindus, Chinese and Muslims are situated. These places have stood the test of time and reminds the current generation how the community was living together then.

Annually, the customary prayers and activities is done. During the celebration season, one could observe the old practices of the local communities. Must not miss to view this place.

No one is allowed to enter the temple except members. Our tour guide says that they prostrate when they worship. And this interests me.

After visiting the beautiful mosque and Chinese temple just up the street I was sorely disappointed at this temple. First, the front gates were locked - chained shut. I did look inside and saw some religious men walking around. The smells emanating from inside were absolutely horrible - so bad I had to walk away from the front gate. The... More

Very small temple and you would get goosebumps when enter into the altar. I can felt that first time when I enter there and very serene and mind peace. So for those devotees need peace and prefers to do meditation, this is the ideal worshipping place.

This Hindu temple was what that caught my heart the most. It was simple yet divine. Had a peaceful and blissful time praying with family.
