“Quietness”
Reviewed 22 July 2013

As a Hindu, i wanted to visit a Hindu temple in Medan. The temple had not many people there, hence it was quiet and peaceful to pray. The temple itself is beautiful from the outside to inside with beautiful sculptures.

“The Temple For Hindu In Medan City”
Reviewed 11 July 2013

We only dropped by at the one of the local souvenir shop just right in front of this temple. We've took few photos from outside this temple. It is quite unique to see this temple for Hindu in a city which majority is Moslem.

“Iconic temple, must visit in Medan”
Reviewed 30 April 2013

The vast temple, in a muslim majority Medan impressed us very much. Very clean environment, peaceful interior, with ornate decorations. It neighbors a big Sikh Gurdwara. The temple is situated in central part of town, accessible by taxis (use metered ones). There are few Indian owned business establishments around for your shopping needs. This temple was built in 1884!

The temple is main temple in Medan. Conveniently located near Sogo shopping complex. Interesting to see local Indian in the temple. There is a visiting time you need to take note.

“A glimpse”
Reviewed 31 January 2013

The Hindu Temple is located just across of Sun Plaza (a large shopping center), 10 minutes by becak from the Mesjid Raya. Sri Mariammam Temple is devoted to the Goddess Kali. It is the oldest temple that was built in 1884 by Medan's sizable South Indian community. The area is called Kampung Keling, which is basically the Indian quarter of Medan where you can find some excellent Indian restaurants.

Not knowing the visit hours, I came at 12.00pm and it was closed because of the school behind it !

Visit hours :
8.00 am - 12.00 pm
4.00 pm - 6.00 pm
