Situated in China Town another must see in that area, the building is amasing, with no much workings on the exterior and interior

We did not venture inside the temple but, the exterior is spectacular in itself. The colours on the building really bring it to life.

I like temples. I take visiting them very serious, especially if they have some ceremony going. And that's what happened when I was at Sri Maha Mariamman Temple.

Visited here with my husband. What a beautiful place. You have to take your shoes off and they can be left very cheaply and safely outside. Also if you are female and showing knees then you can borrow some material to cover up. There is no entrance fee. Well worth a visit

Must visit for all Hindus and others who are interested in Hinduism. The construction of the temple is solid south indian architecture. Needs half an hour to roam around.
