A beautiful temple. No camera or photograph allowed inside temple area but you are free to take the exterior of the temple. Most beautiful during sunrise or sunset! Wear appropriately. Pay a visit to nearby kelip2 and Bukit Melawati.

This is one of the few hindu temples around the Kuala Lumpur area which is not painted in sour candy colours. Lovely terracotta look, those are not carvings, but concrete/plaster statues. Beautiful outside and inside, where one cannot take pictures. In the tropical Malaysian weather,...More
