Sri Mahamariamman Temple, Kuala Lumpur

Located in Chinatown and fronted by a marvellous gate-tower is Kuala Lumpur’s principal Hindu temple, the Sri Mahamariamman Temple, a large and ornate South-Indian shrine dating to 1873. Fresh and vibrantly colourful, the temple houses a large silver chariot that is taken out and paraded to the Batu Caves (13 km north of KL) during the Thaipusam festival in January or Febuary each year. Leave your shoes at the entrance.

  1. What is the correct name of the goddess, resembling Durga, in the left back of the Mariamman temple in Kuala Lumpur? The name begins Sri Pechayee am… but is broken. Can you or one of your readers help?

  2. Hi Melanie,

    I think is “Sri Periyachi Amman”
