As a multi-racial and multi-cultural state, Penang is home to various places of worship catering to different religions. The old Hindu temples in Penang were first built by Indian labourers as well as prisoners brought over from South India by the British during the colonial times. Most of these temples still remained today as devotees flock to the temples during significant days and festivals. The Hindu temples in Penang are built with detailed and unique architecture mostly featuring figurines of various Hindu deities on the roof and walls of the temples.
