Kallumalai Arulmigu Sri Subramaniyar Temple: A Tragic History

Unlike the Batu Caves in Kuala Lumpur, this impressive Indian temple is not built inside one of the magnificent limestone caves. Originally, in 1889, it was. However, after a tragic accident where a priest was killed from a falling rock, a new structure was erected in 1930 away from the cave alongside the Kinta riverbank.
