Sri Sivasakthi Temple (GPS: 5.41186, 100.30909) is a Hindu temple by the bank of Sungai Pinang. It faces Jalan Ayer Itam, right at the bridge across Sungai Pinang, not far from the confluence Sungai Air Itam and Sungai Air Terjun at Dhoby Ghaut, where there are a few more Hindu temples.

Sri Sivasakthi is the village temple for the Hindu community living in Kampung Langkawi, a small village with a mixed population of Malays, Indians and Chinese. The temple was originally built as a small shrine around 1930, and has been expanded a few times since then. The distinctive feature of the temple is its onion-shaped dome that is similar to Muslim mosques, except that it is decorated in the Hindu style.

Sri Sivasakthi Temple (8 March 2009)


When I visited (8 March, 2009), the temple appears newly renovated. I learned that the Kumbabishegam, or temple consecration, was just carried out on 15 February, 2009, about three weeks before, between 8:55 am and 10:20 am. Special prayers called Mandalabishegam Poojas were to be held held from 16 February until 4 April, 2009.
