Kuala Lumpur Walking Tour

Tales of Two Hindu Temples

During the colonial period, British brought in the Indian to work in the rubber plantations and railway related works. They are mostly from the southern part of India namely from Tamil Nadu district.

As their population increased, they built Hindu temples to offer prayers to Lord Murugan and Goddess Maha Mariamman.

This walk will provide the guest with a better understanding of Thaipusam (a festival to honour Lord Murugan, a Hindu God Warrior and son of God Shiva and Goddess Maha Mariamman).


Meet and Greet at the entrance of Central Market.

The walk starts at the Sri Mahamariamman Temple in Jalan Tun HS Lee and ends in Batu Caves. These two temples are inter-related for the Thaipusam ritual. During the walk, you will observe the prayer session, deities, offerings and understand how the Thaipusam procession is carried out each year.
