Hindu Temples

 

This Hindu Temple along Rock Road was originally located on the corner just as one turns into Batu Lintang road from Haji Openg road i.e. it was some where to the right and behind the Jabatan Percetakan building. Due to road expansion works, the temple was relocated to this new site near the "Batu Kinyang" - the mass of brown rock next to it.
