Sri Maha Sakthi Mohambigai Amman Temple in KL

Kuala Lumpur Attractions

Sri Maha Sakthi Mohambigai Amman Temple is a 100-year-old Hindu temple in the centre of Mid Valley City. Dedicated to the goddess Mohambigai, a combination of the Hindu goddesses Parvathy, Saraswathy and Laxmi, it is an impressive building at night especially during Indian celebrations. The temple is dwarfed by Mid Valley Megamall, one of the city’s largest shopping malls. Two imposing statues known as bhootangals stand at its colourful gopuram (entrance gate) and act as guardians of the temple. The shrine also has a large Bodhi tree inside with a statue of a meditating Buddha under it.
