Over a century ago, many Sri Lankan Tamils ventured to Kuala Lumpur and settled here. In those days, it was common for the immigrants to erect temples of deities worshipped by their community in the place they chose to reside, bringing not only their culture but also their faith. One of the temples is Sri Kandaswamy Temple, which was built in 1902. Presently, the Sri Lankan Tamil community is running the temple. As the Sri Lankans built this worship place, it is no wonder the structure of Sri Kandaswamy Temple resembles that of temples in Jaffna, Sri Lanka. Check website for detail pooja timings.
