Chinatown Attractions

Chinatown’s biggest Attractions is perhaps the rows and rows of stalls selling all types of merchandise from food to clothing at bargainable prices. But look further and you will find that there’s more to Chinatown than fake branded goods. Just around the corner from this paradise of bargains are temples that have been around for more than a century.

Built to resemble a human body lying on his back, the temple features an outstanding five-tiered gopuram (tower) decorated with ornate sculptures of Hindu deities. Housed within the temple is a chariot made of 350kg of silver, once used to transport the statue of Lord Murugan to Batu Caves.
