The temple was founded in 1922 and built on land presented by the Sultan of Johor to the Indian community. The humble temple was reopened in 2009 after a grand US$1 million makeover. Nine master craftsmen from Myanmar took 2 years to tile 95% of the temple with intricate designs made from finely cut coloured glass. The 1 million pieces of glass covering the Arulmigu temple consists of six colours, namely blue, red, yellow, green, purple and white.

I firmly believe that taste is subjective and so, warmly welcome differing viewpoints :-D But, I disapprove negative comments that are anonymous or hide behind fake identities. I feel that that is the same as speaking ill of others behind their backs. I look forward to all your comments :-D Thank you. (Date: 18 Dec 2015)
