Hindu Temples In Malaysia
There are hundreds of Hindu Temples In Malaysia, mostly serving members of Malaysia’s sizeable Tamil community and the design of the temples reflects that found in southern India, particularly the use of the multi-tiered gopuram entrance gate.
Some of the temples are very old, starting out as relatively humble structures which have become larger and more elaborate over the years as the community prospers. The oldest Hindu temple in Malaysia is thought to be Sri Poyyatha Vinayagamoorthy Temple in Melaka, which is a Chitty temple.
Here is my somewhat random selection of temples which have caught my eye while traveling around Malaysia. Click on the relevant links under each photo for more information on the temple concerned.
