Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
23 April 2015

One of the most popular temples for both worshippers and tourists visiting Kuala Lumpur is the Sri Mahamariamman Temple. Considered as the oldest and richest Hindu temple in the city, it was built in 1873 by K. Thamboosamy Pilla. Despite its age, the temple only opened its doors to the public in the 1920s. However, even though it has withstood time and elements of nature, the original structure was replaced with the current building in 1968.
