Malacca is one of the 13 states in Malaysia and Indian Tamil traders arrived in Malacca over 400 years ago. The first Hindu Temple at Malacca was built in 1781 AD and is known as Sri Poyyatha Vinayagamoorthy temple. The main deities worshipped are Ganesh and Shiva. Today, the temple also has murtis of Murugan with Valli and Deivani, Mariamman, Sundareswarar, Sanieswarar, Vyravar, Rama and Sitha.
