Temple’s origins traced back to the Pillai family September 21, 2006

Posted by asianpixmen in Culture, India, Malaysia, Places.

This temple had its beginnings as a private shrine for the Pillai family. It was only in the late 1920s that the family opened its doors to the public.

According to architectural records, the temple represents a body that is lying on his back. Head facing West and feet facing East.

This is the famous Indian temple in the heart of Kuala Lumpur’s chinatown.
It has been around for decades. Certainly it has a rich heritage. You will find answers to your questions elsewhere in this blog where I have posted pictures and have written a bit about its history.
