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.
