Penang Hill Hindu Temple

The Hindu temple at the top of Penang Hill is a beautiful temple adorned with intricate sculptures of Hindu deities. The temple is named Sri Aruloli Thirumurugan and is one of the oldest Hindu temples in Penang. The temple was reportedly started off in the 1800s as a small shrine to the Hindu deity Murugan and after years of expansion, became its present state.

On a side note, Happy Deepavali to all Hindus out there.
