Classic beauty within the heart of Chinatown. It is worth a visit. Go in the early morning before all the tourists arrive.

This temple is not as large, exotic or colourful as many Hindu temples, but it's old, has a peaceful, tranquil atmosphere and is a place for Hindus more than curious tourists. We did prayers there and that was fine; it's what it's there for.

Situated along the street where all 3 main places of worship of Hindus, Chinese and Muslims are situated. These places have stood the test of time and reminds the current generation how the community was living together then.

Annually, the customary prayers and activities is done. During the celebration season, one could observe the old practices of the local communities. Must not miss to view this place.
