Arulmigu Sri Rajakaliamman Glass Temple

The Arulmigu Sri Rajakaliamman Glass Temple is a Hindu temple and reputedly the oldest in Malaysia. From the exterior, it’s an innocuous looking South Indian style temple with a gopuram. Inside the temple looks far more elaborate as it’s completely decorated in glass and glass mosaic. The decoration looks heavily influenced by Thai Buddhist temples, except that this temple has taken the glass to the extreme of having the glasswork everywhere. Other than the eye catching glassworks, the temple is fairly typical of Hindu temples with statues of deities dotted around the temple. Surprisingly, the temple also has sculptures of figures from religions including Christianity and Buddhism. Overall, a pretty temple with eye-catching interiors. The temple is to the north of the city centre and can be a pain to get to, especially if walking. I thought it was worth it nevertheless.
