This temple in the heart of Little India is dedicated to Krishna. Statues of him can be found throughout the temple, along with his consorts Lakshmi and Andal (the goddesses of wealth and beauty respectively), and his vehicle, the mythical bird Garuda. The temple is most famous as the starting point for the annual Thaipusam festival, when devotees walk the streets carrying kavadis (cage-like constructions) supported by giant metal skewers pierced though their tongues and cheeks.
