This Hindu temple is beautifully ornate and intricately decorated.

The temple remains in use today, but is quiet. It is worth taking your shoes off to go and wander around the colourful walls and sculptures. There is no visitor information at all but the temple is South Indian style and was built in 1833, making it the oldest Hindu temple in Penang.
