This beautiful Hindu temple is situated on Queen Street and lies in the heart of George Town’s Little India. Nearby you can pick up Indian street food from stalls, which makes a great and tasty lunch. The temple is striking and colourful – you won’t miss it if you’re walking past. It can also be seen from the other side, but the Queen Street entrance is pedestrianised and allows for a better view.
This Indian temple is built in 1883, inside is filled with statues of Hindu deities. Amongst the priceless possessions of this temple is a statue of Lord Subramaniam richly decorated with gold silver, diamonds and emeralds. This statue is normally used to lead a chariot procession during Thaipusam festivals.
The environment here is natural, like the Indian girl in everyone's impression, pure and coquettish, and beautifully natural. The key point is to talk about the accommodation here, it is really leisurely and comfortable, and the price is very cheap, but it is just over 300 yuan, good value for money

The first wave of the 2020 New Year trip ~ Penang, Malaysia.
The whole Malaysia is really a magical place, especially the Malacca River Penang. In this small city, various cultures collide here. This Hindu temple is located near Mural Street. It was built in 1883 and is Penang. The oldest Hindu temple. The whole temple is very beautiful. You need to take off your shoes when you enter. Out of respect, there is no photo taken after entering.
Little India is a lovely area to wander around... the temple was good to see from the outside, but we had missed the opportunity to go in.
I arrived just as the chariot was being emptied on it's return from Thiaspum. Lots of people cheering. I came back an hour later to visit the temple, quite nice.
Sadly as we came during Thaipusam we were only able to see the outside. We were however lucky enough to see the parade with the golden chariot and it was a beautiful experience with everyone offering ...
A very elaborate Indian temple. Gorgeous on the exterior and also inside. You have to remove your shoes if you wish to enter. There is a tap on the side of the entrance for you to wash your feet.
This temple, built in 1833, is the oldest Hindu temple in Georgetown, colourful and with lots of statues of gods and goddesses. Worthwhile to visit when you are in Georgetown
