Sri Shakti Devasthanam

The latest of Kuala lumpur attractions is Shakti Temple at Bukit Rotan on the outskirts of Kuala Selangor. This new temple was consecrated in May 2013 and with its exquisitely decorated sandstone walls and gopuram, it will surely soon be recognised as one of the finest Hindu temples in Malaysia and may well become a leading tourist attraction as its fame spreads in years to come.

The temple took four years to build, apparently at a cost of RM12 million (which seems really good value when you consider a prime bungalow in central KL can go for that amount). Skilled craftsmen were brought in from India to work on the project. The temple was finally consecrated in May of this year.

According to Hindu mythology the goddess Shakti, who was consort to Lord Shiva, immolated herself. Shiva picked up the remains of her body and performed an angry dance cutting Shakti’s corpse and jewellery into pieces which fell to the ground at 51 places all over the sub-continent (44 in modern day India, 1 in Bangladesh, 3 in Nepal, 1 in Pakistan, 1 in Tibet and 1 in Sri Lanka).

Two Hindu sages visited all 51 of these holy sites and collected soil and chakra plates made of five metals and brought them back to be installed in this temple, which is the only place in the world where all 51 can be found in a single venue.
