The temple is located off Jalan Syed Putra.

Brickfields also has a number of beautiful century-old churches, including the Tamil Methodist Church that was established in 1896, the Evangelical Lutheran Church – a Tamil Lutheran church – established in 1907, and the Church of the Holy Rosary established in 1903. The last has Chinese inscriptions on its building structure that made it stand out among other. These churches are popular wedding church destinations as they also make exceptionally amazing photo shooting venues.

Of course, don’t miss out on the authentic Indian banana leaf rice. The traditional food stalls are also a must-try. To drink, Lassi would be a wonderful thirst-quenching beverage on a regular summer day in Malaysia (we are hooked on Mango Lassi, one of the flavors of Lassi).
