“Stupa”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 April 2012

Typical Hindu stupa , but it's a different one from what you see in every country. I like the worn off look of the gate stupa.

“Wonderful Hindu temple”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 April 2012

Having experienced the Hindu festival of Thaipusam a few days before at the Batu Caves it was wonderful to see this temple. The architecture was so elaborate and intricate it was well worth the visit.
