The Famous Mariamman temple is the Hindu temple in Malaysia... Very Clean and all the Hindu Rituals are followed in the temple... Once you get inside then you will feel like you are somewhere in the South Indian temple... Nice place to visit once.

This Hindu temple, where Mariamman is the main deity is located very close to Jalan Petaling in China Town. We visited the temple around 8 am in the morning & had a very peaceful darshan.

This temple is located in a Chinatown, which was really close to the hotel where we were staying so we passed by couple of times. The temple has truly amazing and original roof it must be said.

A must on your visit whilst in KL. Beautiful temple just along from Petaling St Market. It looks small from the outside but opens up once inside.

We spent quite a bit of time here as there was a lot to take in. We even came back to be present for a ritual that was taking place. The guards were very friendly.
