Sri Poyatha Moorthi Temple, Melaka

Sri Poyatha Moorthi Temple

 Jalan Tukang Emas

 Since 1781

Sri Poyatha Moorthi Temple is the oldest functioning Hindu temple in Malaysia and Maritime Southeast Asia. The temple is situated on Jalan Tukang Emas, also known as "Harmony Street" because of its proximity to the Kampung Kling Mosque and Cheng Hoon Teng Temple.

The temple was built by Thavinayagar Chitty, the leader of the Chitty people, in 1781 after the Dutch colonial government of Malacca gave him a plot of land. The temple is dedicated to Vinayagar or Ganesha, the elephant deity. In the back room is a sculpture of the deity with the head of an elephant and the body of a man with four hands. There is another altar dedicated to Lord Muruga, the younger brother of Lord Vinayagar.

Railway Thirumurugan Alayam, 
Kuala Krai, Kelantan

Established as a Muniswaran temple by the early railway personnel of the Kuala Krai Station about 100 years ago this temple went through many physical changes before finally becoming a Thirumurugan Temple in recent years. However the original Muniswaran Shrine still stands even after major changes were made as Lord Muniswaran is still popularly worshiped here.
