We really liked the way this temple being run for generations and maintained so well. Very clean and gives kind of peace to mind.The trustees of this temple maintain the Batu cave temple as well.

“Nice Hindu temple”
Reviewed December 1, 2012

This a a small Hindu temple which is very pretty especially in sunshine :) You have to take your shoes off and leave them in a little kiosk next door and walk bare feet around the temple. Once you see one Hindu temple you can give the others a miss.

“nice”
Reviewed November 14, 2012

If you're in the area check it out. If you're in the chinatown area its definitely worth a visit. You will need to take your shoes off but there is a place to leave them, its free but you can leave a tip if you choose.

“Lovely and interesting Hindu temple”
Reviewed November 12, 2012 via mobile

Having never been to a Hindu temple before I found this one to be both beautiful and interesting. It was peaceful to wander around looking at the statues, mosaics and paintings of the different deities. There are no explanations in English however of who the deities are or what their roles are, which is to be expected in a functioning temple. A local man was helpful in talking to us about some of the features of the temple. I think to get more out of it a little bit of reading beforehand is wise.

The local man said that the congregation has prayers later in the day, around 5:30 which we would be welcome to see. I am not sure whether that was something specific for the upcoming Diwali festival or if that is a daily occurrence.

There is a facility to leave your shoes safely - 40sen for one basket which fitted both of our sandals.
