If you have seen a 100 or so temples already, this one might be common for you, but I really enjoyed seeing it. Amazed to be in the middle of the city and still have the remarkable calmness and beauty.

This is one of the most beautiful Hindu temples I've seen anywhere and in the middle of the hustle and bustle of downtown KL. If the architecture doesn't grab you, perhaps the quiet and serenity inside will.

I briefly visited the Sri Maha Mariammam Temple on Lebuh Queen in the afternoon. The detailed architecture was beyond my expectations, with a prominent dome and entrance tower. The colours of the carvings and sculptures was vibrant and delightful. This is the oldest Hindu temple...More

No. There is no such facility. Normally people use regular saloon and then arrive at the temple for worship. This is a small temple right in the town.

No entry fee required. But you'll have to take off your shoe. There's a shoe safe keeper counter on the left before the entrance door. You'll just have to pay about MYR0.20/pair (if I'm not mistaken)
