Discover The Hindu sanctuaries Malaysia

Along the roads and often outside the cities or villages, you will find several monuments attesting to the colonial past and religious traditions. Amongst these unavoidable sites, do not miss out on the temples, mosques or pagodas on Penang Island, and Batu caves in Cameron Highlands. All of these sites host extraordnary Hindu sanctuaries and have remained venues for baptisms or the religious celebration known as Thaipusam.
