Sri Maha Vanna Muniswarar Alayam, Jalan Hulu Gombak, Gombak

INTRODUCTION

Also known as the "Kabali" Temple, Vanna Muniswarar Alayam is well known for the self-service offerings by locals and its also a local community powered temple. 

To go to this temple, one must access the old Bentong road from Gombak. The ride to this temple will be a pleasant one as you will  pass by many orang asli community settlements. As driving through the jungle, do take the opportunity to enjoy the green scenery along the way, be alert with the cycles of course.

HANUMAN SWAMI

Being an open-access community powered temple, some of the sannathi will be locked and you might be required to seek the keys from the caretaker. Once you enter the temple, you may noticed that the eyes of the Panchamuga Hanuman idol will be made from marbles, and even other accessories as well.
