    This temple, dedicated to the Lord Murugan is very important to Hindus in Malaysia and Singapore... It celebrates its festival every March/April and it is estimated that more than 300,000 devotees from all over the country will attend the celebrations each year...

    The legend about the temple is that about 120 years ago, construction of the road from Kuala Lumpur to Kuantan was in progress here... When a large tree was being chopped, it started to bleed... One of the Tamil workers went into a trance at the same time... He said that the tree should be spared and the road laid a short distance away... The British supervisor refused... To everybody's astonishment a figure of a child appeared on the trunk of the tree... The supervisor was surprised and changed his mind... The road was laid away from the tree... The place became sacred, and it took the name of Sri MarathANdava BAla DhandAyuthapANi (Lord Murugan)... Several true devotees have experienced miracles here... They are bestowed with good fortunes in their lives... The lame had walked, the dumb has spoken and the chronic sick - healed... These miracles are still occurring... (extracts from its website)...

    The road now runs by the side of the temple...

    Maran Hill is a 18-holes par-72 course playing to 6022m from the blue tees... The First Nine is the shorter at 3004m while the Second Nine plays to 3018m... The course in hilly and undulating... Many of the holes are rather tight while will pose problems to high handicapers as well that those not hitting straight shots... Water comes into play in a number of holes but these are not too intimidating...

    Green fees (including buggy) is RM65.00 per golfer for both weekday and weekend play...

    Equipment: The clubhouse sits of the top of a hill and have a panoramic view of the surrounding area and the golf course... The club is under-utilised and has a big changing men and ladies changing rooms... The breezy golfer's terrace caters for meals and lunch for golfers...
