Additional Information

Introduction

Sri Mahamariamman Temple is an ancient Hindu temple in Malaysia built by Indian workers who migrated from Tamil Nadu in southern India. The highlight of the temple is the temple tower above, filled with magnificent Hindu gods, vivid and colorful. Locals like to dedicate flowers, coconuts, and sour citrus to Mariamman, who is the incarnation of the South Indian goddess. The temple population is also crowded with hawkers selling garlands. When celebrating the Thaipusam Festival, the statues in the temple will be placed on a silver chariot, and be paraded from here all the way to the Batu Caves.
