Railway Muniswaran Temple, Batu Tiga, Shah Alam

Railway Muniswaran Temple, 
Batu Tiga, Shah Alam

This temple appears to be the last surviving relic of the past. Surrounded by modern buildings and highways this enclave remains isolated and perhaps even hidden from view. Old abandoned pre-war shop lots share this forgotten space, not forgetting the railway station which has been upgraded over the years.

The temple is not clearly visible from the main road as the road has a higher elevation.However, the abandoned shop lots are clearly visible.The age of these buildings though unknown may be at least 60 years old preceding the founding of modern day Shah Alam.These buildings are most likely to be pre-war buildings but it remains mere speculation without proper verification.

Abandoned shop lots of a bygone era

I have been to the temple mentioned above... It's a house temple if I'm not mistaken... The owners of the temple are very kind and friendly towards devotees whom visit the temple... Thank you very much for posting all these valuable pictures in your blog... :D
