Wonderful old temple with the outside that is beyond belief! Interesting history and you should go inside (obeying their rules) and take in the ambience. Probably place not to miss.

Free to visit and 2 minutes walk from the train and metro lines. Free to enter. Shoes have to be removed and a small payment made for save storage of the shoes. A pretty temple that's very well kept with lots of colour. Dress appropriately.

We went to this temple which was very old but as usual very quiet and serene. You can see some priests making parchments at the back of the temple.

No. There is no such facility. Normally people use regular saloon and then arrive at the temple for worship. This is a small temple right in the town.

No entry fee required. But you'll have to take off your shoe. There's a shoe safe keeper counter on the left before the entrance door. You'll just have to pay about MYR0.20/pair (if I'm not mistaken)
