Sri Maha Mariamman - Kuala Lumpur
Sri Maha Mariamman is geographically located at latitude 3° 8' 55" North of the Equator and longitude 101° 41' 52" East of the Prime Meridian on the Map of Malaysia. The Sri Maha Mariamman Temple is founded by Thambusamy Pillai in 1873 and was initially used as a private shrine by the Pillai family. The Temple was originally sited somewhere near the KL Railway Station. It shifted to its present location along Jalan Tun H S Lee (next to KL's Chinatown) in 1885. The family threw open the temple door to the public in the late 1920s. This Temple resembles the form of a human body lying on its back with the head positioned towards the west and the feet towards the east. Visitors to the Temple are greeted by a 5 tiered gopuram. It is the tallest structure in the Temple and corresponds to the feet of the body. It is the threshold between the material and spiritual world. The dramatic 22.9m (75ft) high pyramid-shaped gate tower is decorated with depictions of Hindu gods sculpted by artisans from southern India. The chief sculptor was the late S. T. Muniappa from Tamil Nadu and is credited for creating the 228 idols on the gopuram. The Temple opens daily from 6.00AM to 9.00PM. Visitors are remindered to remove their footwear before entering the Temple. It is by Tun Hs Lee, J, near Tun Perak, J, near Hang Lekiu, J, near Lbh Ampang, near Lrt Ampang Line C.
