Sri Maha Mariamman Temple Dhevasthanam is located in downtown Kuala Lumpur. The name of this temple is a mouthful for me but everytime when I passed by this area, I will pause awhile to admire the grandness and the beauty of this temple.
This photo was taken at about 8:30AM and showed the front top portion of the temple. The statues are nicely done and detailed too. The pigeons on top were real birds and you could see others flying a distance behind the temple.
This photo is cropped to show the top part and sharpen.

Glad you're back.
Very interesting and sharp and well-exposed shot. The morning hour provided the best exposure. Why not have a full scale shot instead of cropping and leaving the top part. This will be more"completed" shot. Isn't it.

I find this picture very beautiful, also the colours its very pleasant, the sharpness and clarity are of great quality, maybe this picture little more slant to rightside.
Thanks for sharing.

Good quality details and sharpness in this shot. I like the subtle colours here instead of the usual strong contrasting and raw colours. The light must have done the trick. Well taken. Regards and a nice weekend.

Amazing amount of wonderfully layered details of the temple's top.
A bunch of bright yet well contrasted colours in front of a virgin blue sky.
Well done my friend,

It's intersting to look at all the intricate detail of all the statues. I can't imagine how long it took them to create this temple.

wow! I am surprised to see such ornate South Indian architecture in Malaysia, maybe that is because it has a large Tamil population though. These types are quite common in Tamil Nadu, it is like the small version of the Meenakshi temple! The colors are nice and I like where you have cut it off on the bottom so it is not like any statues are cut at an abrupt spot to make it seem like you cropped it wrong, the details and colors contrasting with the solid sky is great too.
