Located on Dato Keramat Road, this is an Indian temple with South Indian architecture dedicated to Lord Shiva. It is considered a 'male' temple as the main sanctuary has the image of Shiva in it. There is a separate entrance for Shiva's consort, Shakti, the female deity. This is the temple of the Nagarathar community of Chettiars. A colourful temple, it has an elaborate five tier tower with intricate sculptures.

Sivan temple as its commonly known...has been my 'little playground' during my childhood. There used to be a 'teppe kola' at that time and everything was as safe as can be. In fact we (kids) looked forward to going to the temple just to play in the kola--of course under the supervision of an elder-which usually used to be granpa!! I temple worth visiting if you are a Penangite for that down memory lane thingy and for tourist its a step into the history book of Hinduism more so history book of Sivan temple in Penang. Look out for the arrangements & the structures in and around the temple...will tell you lots of stories!! One form my wish list: Wish they will bring back the firendliness of teh 'teppe kola; and not fence it up!!
