The dazzlingly colourful Sri Mariamman Temple is the cultural and religious hub of Georgetown’s ‘Little India’ quarter, home to immigrants from the sub-continent for more than a century. Encrusted with garishly painted statues of deities, demons and mythical creatures, the Sri Mariamman is the oldest of the city’s Hindu temples, and it is still in daily use. Within stands a valuable statue of the Hindu deity Lord Subramaniam, lavishly embellished with gold and precious stones.
Address: Jalan Masjid Kapitan Kling, Georg Town, Penang
More Info: The temple can be found at the corner of Lebuh Chulia and Lebuh Queen.
