Unlike Masjid Jamek Mosque you can enter this Indian temple even if you are woman and of different nomination, as long as you leave the shoes for keeping. The temple with its colourfull facade is tucked between other buildings in Chinatown and there are sculptures of all possible gods also brightly painted. You can by yellow real flower garlands outside... More

A working temple so you have to show respect and it is only round the corner from China Town so is well worth popping in. We were round it in 15 minutes so it is not big but got some good photographs. I would recommend a visit and remember and check in your shoes.

One of the most gorgeous temples i've seen in my life. Very impressive, outside and inside. It's not big, but the amount of statues and beautiful objects is simply amazing. I loved looking at all the details, and people are quite interesting to watch, all in all, there is plenty you can notice and enjoy. Make notice that you are... More

It is not a memorable temple, especially if you have visited many already in your life, but if you are around the area, it is worth to go there. Please note that shoes are obviously not allowed inside, but you cannot also just leave them in front of the entrance. You have to give them to a counter and pay... More

A warm welcome and explaination was given at this active temple. The guide was welcoming and helpful. I was worried about protocols, but was guided and did not commit any errors. Just remember to remove your shoes when entering!

We were looking for this place after visiting the Petaling market. We were happy to stumble across it. We did not see people going in so we stayed out and took pictures of the wonderful sculptures adorning the roof.
