Sri Kandaswamy Kovil
One of KLs oldest places of worship
What we say:
Tucked away on a back street in Brickfields is one of KL's oldest and most characterful places of worship.
It was founded just after the turn of the 20th century to serve the local community of Ceylonese (Sri Lankan) Tamil Hindus. It is dedicated primarily to Lord Murugan, the most popular deity among Tamils, but falls within the broad Shaiva tradition.
Although it takes a bit of effort to get to -- the nearest public transport, Tun Sambanthan Monorail Station, is a 10-minute walk away -- Sri Kandaswamy is well worth the effort.
It's worth bearing in mind that this is first and foremost a place of worship, rather than a tourist attraction.
