HISTORY - THE ORIGINAL TEMPLE

The Taiping Shiv Temple was established in 1936 by members of the local Hindu (Punjabi, Sindhi and Gujerati) community as a centre for their religious activities. Since then, the temple has served the needs of the devotees of Lord Shivji not only in Taiping but also throughout the whole of Malaysia and Singapore.

It has become well-known for its annual Shivratri festival which is celebrated with much pomp and splendour. Presently, the Taiping Shiv Temple is managed by the Sanatan Dharam Sabha, Taiping, and an in-house priest is available to conduct prayers and ceremonies.
