What people are saying:

South of Jalan Hang Lekir, tucked away on Jalan Tun HS Lee, is the extravagantly decorated Sri Mahamariamman Temple. Incorporating Spanish and Italian tiles, precious stones and gold in its design, KL’s main Hindu temple is an incongruous sight situated between two Buddhist temples at the edge of Chinatown

Additional Information

Introduction

Sri Mahamariamman Temple is an ancient Hindu temple in Malaysia built by Indian workers who migrated from Tamil Nadu in southern India. The highlight of the temple is the temple tower above, filled with magnificent Hindu gods, vivid and colorful. Locals like to dedicate flowers, coconuts, and sour citrus to Mariamman, who is the incarnation of the South Indian goddess. The temple population is also crowded with hawkers selling garlands. When celebrating the Thaipusam Festival, the statues in the temple will be placed on a silver chariot, and be paraded from here all the way to the Batu Caves.
