If you are walking around at Chinatown KL maybe you need to take a look this temple. The location is near the Hang Lekir Street, not so far from Pasar Seni Station.

we visited this Indian temple whikle strolling the Kuala Lumpur city area. The entrance to this temple has a tower with many elborate sculptures built on the tiers. Inside there are many more Indian sculptures and a worshipping area.
