Well maintained Hindu temple didn't go inside but it is quite small. Good photography spot as the street isn't that busy.

The temple was closed when we arrived but we could still peek inside through the open doors. Also, the front entry area is quite remarkable even if you cannot go inside. It was unclear whether the closure was COVID related or not. It seemed to be just closed during the middle of the afternoon.

A very big temple and a rather old one built in the early 1900s. Kept very clean and well maintained.

We met this place coincidently when we walked our way to bunn choon restarant. Quiet during pandemic. I believe it would be a busy place before the locked down.

location is very good. easy access in the middle of tourist area. it's painted every 6-7 years. now it's time to paint again but cannot maybe due to corona virus. so at present color faded & doesn't look nice.

This colourful temple is the oldest Hindu temple in Kuala Lumpur. There is an amazingly beautifully ornate entranceway and many intricate carvings and statues inside the temple, including an impressive mural wall. This is a very peaceful temple in the middle of a very busy district of Kuala Lumpur - 4 minutes walk from Petaling Street Market.

I was wearing baggy shorts to the knee and still had to wrap around a sarong around my waist to my feet. Shoulders and knees must be covered by women to enter. Shoes have to be taken off to the left of the entranceway, for a fee of 20cents each. Free entry to the temple.

Tourists are made to feel very welcome, although this is also an active temple with many worshipers there when we visited. Recommended to visit both during the day and also at night when the temple is lit up with colourful lights. We spent around 20 minutes here to having a good look around and taking lots of photos. Unfortunately, there is very little information available about the temple. It was however, generally well maintained and very beautiful.

Very colorful and huge. There was a wedding going on so it felt a bit intrusive to be exploring and taking pictures.

A beautiful temple to visit in the Chinatown area. The entrance architecture is amazing. People at the temple were very welcoming to us.

Very welcoming people. Nice to know other cultures. Very interesting. It is a functional temple, people are worshipping and at the same time, tourists are visiting.
