Bayan Baru Sivan TempleBayan Baru Sivan Temple (4 February, 2013)

Bayan Baru Sivan Temple (GPS: 5.31555, 100.28582) is a Hindu temple in Sungai Keluang, Bayan Lepas. It is located on a remnant portion of the Bayan Lepas Main Road now known as Jalan Tokong Ular. The temple was built from 2007 to 2008, with its consecration ceremony or Maha Kumbabishegam held on 1 February 2009. The temple is formally known as Sri Vishwanather Sri Visalatchi Alayam.

I first visited the Bayan Baru Sivan Temple in October 2008, when it was not yet completed. A thatch structure sheltered the gopuram, or sculpture tower. At the entrance is a newly built arch with figures of deities which are momentarily whitewashed. When I returned in 2013, the temple was already completed and functioning.
