Sri Mahamariamman Temple
Sri Mahamariamman Temple, situated near KL Sentral, is the oldest and richest Hindu temple in Kuala Lumpur. Adorned with beautifully preserved Spanish and Italian tiles, precious stones and gold in its design, this temple is sandwiched between two Buddhist temples at the edge of Chinatown and is accessible within a three-minute walk from Petaling Street. Great for interesting photo opportunities, the five tiers at the entrance gate of Sri Mahamariamman Temple feature intricate carvings of 228 Hindu idols frozen in dozens of scenes from the Ramayana epic while the interior are decorated with beautiful hand-painted motifs depicting stories from early Hinduism.
