Being one of the oldest temples in Malaysia, it has had a long history from its humble beginning at the base of a waterfall  in 1782 to its subsequent relocation to a 11 acre site in 1850 before moving to its final abode; perched majestically high in the hills of Jalan Kebun Bunga, about 30 metres higher than its previous structure built in 1850.This new temple complex was constructed on a safer location after much deliberation and study, to accommodate the ever-growing influx of devotees.The grand consecration ceremony (Kumbabishegam) of the newly completed Arulmigu Balathandayuthapani temple was held on the 29th of June 2012. Built at a cost of 10 million ringgit, this temple is said to be the largest Murugan temple outside India.

Beautiful creation

This is one of the most beautiful temples I have ever visited in Malaysia. It had humble beginnings and now it has turned into something so majestic. Thank to the efforts of the many generations of temple groundskeepers and the associations that support it.

Naturally entrance is free and you need to respect the dress code, rules and try not to make too much noise. Unless you want to be kicked out. I had a fun time exploring and having a close up look at things like the statues of deities and the building's architecture. Much can be learned from such an old building and each person walks away learning something different. I could talk about this place all day but I think it's better if you went to have a look at it yourself. Highly reccommended place
