My first feeling when I stepped in the temple, the floor was so clean. Looks like they well managed the place, well done. Interesting to look around in the temple, like an enclave.

This temple is in the middle of the city, close to the petaling street and the central market. I would recommend you to come here while visiting Malaysia because is a very nice way to get to understand a lot of their culture. This is a hindu temple, please be respectful with the visitors. Have in mind that you have... More

So you think you have seen it all, like many travellers you have had enough temples to last a life time. But wait here is something different, the shear size and complexity is overwhelming . Not that its huge just that there is so much crammed into the available space and the Hindu people are very friendly
