Visiting this small temple in Little India is like stepping into another world. Brahman priests are chanting and sadhus are praying. Nice statues with flower garlands. Not an amazing temple architecturally, but a nice oasis in the craziness of Little India.

The temple is not as ornate or as well presented as it's namesake in Singapore or Kuala Lumpur. But the carvings over the pyramid shaped entrance are well worth a look.

You can easily walk here from the Georgetown area and the outside is very beautiful. We didn't go outside as there were many people going in to pray and thought it better just to look from a distance.
