Penang Hindu Temples

Start here
Penang Hindu Temples were first built by Indian labourers as well as prisoners brought over from South India by the British. In addition to the blue collar workers, the merchant class including the Chettiars, the Chulias, the Sikhs as well as a small community of Gujaratis and other North Indians also made their way to Penang. Not all Indians are Hindus, those who profess the Muslim faith built mosques and shrines to their Muslim saints.

The Mahamariamman Temple in Queen Street and the Sri Rama Temple in York Close are two of the oldest Hindu temples in Penang. Just about as old is the Sri Aruloli Thirumurugan Temple in Penang Hill. All these temples began as small shrines which were enlarged into temples over time. As one of the places in Southeast Asia where Thaipusam is celebrated on a big scale, Penang also see several Hindu temples associated with this festival, especially those located around the Penang Botanical Gardens.

On this page, we list the Hindu temples in Penang which we have managed to document. Click the thumbnails for further details.
