It is presently being renovated so we can’t say for sure whether it’ll be worth a look when it’s done, but it does remain one of just two Hindu temples in Malaysia that face the sea. Devotees come to visit the Shrine of Kali, but it is also a focal point for Pangkor’s annual Goddess Kali and Kuan Yin Festival, held in March, in which both Indian and Chinese communities participate; it’s described as being somewhat similar to Thaipusam.
