MAJESTIC HINDU TEMPLES - Negeri Sembilan, Melaka, Penang

 
 

NEGERI SEMBILAN

 

Take a drive around Seremban, the capital of Negeri Sembilan, and visitors will definitely notice the Sri Bala Thandayuthapani Temple. From humble beginnings in 1865, the temple has been transformed into a majestic edifice with a brightly coloured tower and ornate decorations. Situated across the temple is the Seremban State Mosque.

 
 
 

MELAKA / MALACCA

 

Believed to be the oldest in the country, the Sri Poyyatha Vinayagar Moorthi Temple was built as early as 1781. The land was donated by a Chitty headman by the name of Thaivanayagam Chitty. This temple is dedicated to Lord Ganesha, the deity with an elephant head. Known as the ?remover of obstacles?, Lord Ganesha is worshipped before beginning new tasks or pursuits. The temple stands on the same row as the Kampung Hulu Mosque and Cheng Hoon Teng Chinese Temple.

 
 
 

PENANG

 

 

Situated at the corner of Lebuh Chulia and Lebuh Queen is the Sri Maha Mariamman Temple, the oldest temple on the island of Penang. It traces its origins all the way to 1801, when it was a humble Hindu shrine. This temple was renovated and consecrated in 1833. It features the Hindu Goddess Sri Maha Mariamman in her various incarnations. Hailed as the ?mother of the universe?, the Goddess Mariamman is worshipped by all, especially ladies. An important occasion here is Navarathri or the nine-day festival celebrated in the month of Puratasi, the sixth month in the Hindu calendar. Nearby is the Little India street, where visitors can find an array of goods from flowers, incense sticks to costume jewellery. Occupying a scenic spot on a hilltop, the Arulmigu Bala Thandayuthapani Temple is another famous place of worship in Penang.   Dedicated to Lord Thandayuthapani, an incarnation of Lord Muruga, this temple is frequented by thousands of devotees during the annual Thaipusam festival.Don?t miss the overnight procession when the chariot is taken all the way to the Nattukottai Chettiar Temple in Georgetown.
