This bright temple, tucked along a lively street in Chinatown, was built in 1873 by Thambusamy Pillai, a pillar of old KL's Indian community. It was originally a private temple to Hindu deities, who are depicted in colorful dioramas inside and up the tall gopuram at the main entrance. For RM.20 (20 sen), keep your shoes at the counter on the side wall before you enter. Across the street, the 121-year-old Guan Di Temple is dedicated to the Chinese God of War, who also represents loyalty and righteousness.
