“Awesome view”
Reviewed 24 July 2014 via mobile

It's a 'must' for devotees and guest from all around the world to pay a visit to this magnificent Lord Muruga's temple...it's 513 steps would be a challenge to go up the hill all the way to see the Lord, but trust me...it's worth it, the temple and the views around it is breathtaking!

“What a Great Temple”
Reviewed 20 July 2014

A must visit and well worth the challenge of climbing 513 steps up. There was still some works being carried out. As you climb up you can get a very nice view of parts of Penang from different levels of the hill. On the top is a very nice serene Hindu Temple that will soon make you forget the strain of getting there.
