Free admission

The extravagantly decorated Sri Mahamariamman Temple is the oldest Hindu temple in Malaysia—and a popular stop for locals and visitors navigating the streets of Kuala Lumpur’s Chinatown. Rising 75 feet (23 meters) above the busy marketplace, the temple’s five-tiered tower is adorned with colorful tiles, precious stones and hundreds of carvings of Hindu deities, rendering the building a popular attraction as well as a place of worship.

The main prayer hall inside the temple is as ornate as its exterior, with murals and frescos lining the walls and shrines beneath the embellished dome ceiling. At the back of the complex, you’ll find the shrine of South Indian mother goddess Mariamman, also known as Parvati, as well as smaller shrines dedicated to Lord Ganesha and Lord Muruga. During the Hindu festival of Thaipusam, held in January and February, the sculpture of Lord Muruga is transported from the temple to Batu Caves on a silver chariot, drawing crowds in the tens of thousands.

You can visit Sri Mahamariamman Temple on a walk through bustling Petaling Street or as a part of a variety of cultural heritage tours, including city walking and night tours. Expect to be in the company of devotees in prayer, especially if visiting early morning or late evening.

Kuala Lumpur's Cultural Highlights and Landmarks: A Self-Guided Audio Tour

Join me on this self guided audio tour that’ll give you a deeper understanding of Malaysia’s cultural melting pot. We’ll stop in at the city's oldest places of worship: the Hindu Sri Mahamariamman Temple, the Taoist Sin Sze Si Ya Temple and the Jamek Mosque. They’re all overlooked gems that get much less attention than their more modern counterparts – and it's in their mix of beliefs, practices and even superstitions that you’ll discover what makes us Malaysians all “same same but different”. Along the way, we’ll also walk by the counterfeit market on Chinatown’s Petaling Street and the Central Market Kuala Lumpur where you’ll find more authentic craftsmanship. You’ll have an opportunity to sample durian too, the notorious king of fruits and we’ll walk through what was the first settlement here. (It’s still a lively migrant area). Then there’s the point at the confluence of two rivers that gave Kuala Lumpur its name.
