Sri Sithi Vinayagar Temple
A colourful and tranquil temple
Entering this temple along the hectic Jalan Bagan Luar – across from the glitzy Cathay cinema – one is surrounded by a myriad of pleasant hues and sculptures depicting images from Hindu epics and scriptures, all packed within a cosy interior.
The temple was established in the early 1900s and rebuilt in 1964. The last consecration ceremony in November 2014 saw the unveiling of a grand beautification project on the premise. The temple is dedicated to the Hindu god Ganesh, also known as Vinayagar.
A chariot procession takes place every year in conjunction with the deity’s holy day of Ganesh Chaturthi which falls around the month of September.
