Melaka General: 89 reviews and 129 photos


Favorite thing: Sri Poyyatha Vinayagar Moorthi Temple is one of the first Hindu temple built in the country at the turn of the century. It was built on the plot given by the Dutch. It is located at between Jalan Tukang Emas and Jalan Hang Kasturi.

It has a minaret which is decorated with cows in red colour. The temple is dedicated to Hindu deity with the head of an elephant called Vinoyagar - better known to most as Ganesg. Lots of businessmen and also lovers looking for blissed marriage come here.
