“Beautiful temple”
Reviewed March 6, 2014

Small Hindu temple in the heart of KL's Chinatown. It was quiet when we went and we enjoyed wandering around, looking at the colourful shrines and taking photographs. There's a counter outside which will look after your shoes for a small charge.

“Worth a stop”
Reviewed February 27, 2014

We stopped by for a quick visit and were glad we did. It is very interesting. There is a place to leave your shoes just outside.

“Colorful and loud”
Reviewed February 24, 2014 via mobile

Vibrant colors everywhere! One guy playing some kind of a horn and another beating a drum! Others perform a religious ceremony with flower leaves, paint and incense. Worth going to see.

“Very Calm Temple”
Reviewed February 19, 2014

This temple was quite small compared to one we visited in Little India but it was full of bright artwork, atmosphere and worshippers seeking solace and praying. It wasn't crowded at all and this temple allowed you to take photographs whereas the one in Little India didn't. The people were so friendly, posed for photos and interacted happily with us. Some members of our group were invited to attend a family wedding in a few weeks. I enjoyed it and it was a good example of a Hindu Temple. Located close to Central Market.
