The Nattukottai Chettiar Temple, Penang - A Beautiful Hindu Wedding Ceremony


The Nattukottai Chettiar Temple also known as Arulmigu Sri Thandayuthapani Temple is probably the most popular Hindu temple in Penang. It is a leading tourist attraction attracting approximately 500,000 people for the Thaipusam festival annually. Nattukkottai consists of two words, "nattu" and "kottai", which means "country forts". The Chettiar community who built this temple was a bunch of astute businessmen and moneylenders who were excellent in managing wealth.

This chokkatan (chequered) designed temple is an amazing venue for organizing a Hindu wedding ceremony in Penang.

Another Indian wedding was held at Sri Thandayuthapani Nattukkottai Chettiar’s Temple at WaterFall Road, Penang. We’ve been to this temple numerous time. It is one of the most beautiful temples we have seen.

The very special moment was we capture the scene that in the Temple, one of the male peacock showing off his fur and dancing in front to the couple while the couple walk over them. He opens his tail at camera almost 5 minutes!
