A beautiful hindu temple in honorof Mariamman who take care of the tamils when outside their tamil world. Active temple with constantly ongoing ceremonies. A small coin and your shoes are well taken care of when visiting.

We went to this temple which was very old but as usual very quiet and serene. You can see some priests making parchments at the back of the temple.

Well worth a visit just for the entrance way. Great photo opportunities especially the dark room to the right with lamps and candles in it.

Stunning building frontage. You must pay to leave your shoes at the front and enter barefoot. Inside all sorts of banging and clashing and general worshipping. Very busy and very revered place of Hindu worship.

From outside you'll be charmed by the detail of the building entrance. You can go inside with paying a little amount of money for shoe storage. Inside, It was so so, sorry.

No. There is no such facility. Normally people use regular saloon and then arrive at the temple for worship. This is a small temple right in the town.

No entry fee required. But you'll have to take off your shoe. There's a shoe safe keeper counter on the left before the entrance door. You'll just have to pay about MYR0.20/pair (if I'm not mistaken)
