What people are saying:

Looking up at the tumultuous eaves and towers, which require a little care and energy, one cannot help feeling a tidal wave of admiration. The temple was filled with prayers, and a twilight of exotic music, and the music that seemed to pass through the richness of spices, reached its nose and its brain. Two temple guards, part-time cashiers, monitor every person entering the temple whether barefoot. Wearing shoes is disrespectful to the gods, leaving shoes for 2 MYR per person. There are many around the temple selling this special devotion to the gods wreath, the size of the different.

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.
