This Sree Maha Mariamman Temple was previously part of  the Petaling Estate plantation before it gave way to development and today, it is the only one of its kind which has a shrine for Lord Brahma and Mount Mahameru installed on top of a turtle (an avatar of Vishnu) in front of the main alter. Even the Navagraha shrine is unique as the idol of Suriya Bagawan is installed together with His two consorts and horses.
