A three days trip to Medan. This trip didn't go out of Medan to places like Brastagi and Lake Toba because I wanted to cover te entire Medan City, which is the third largest city in Indonesia after Jakarta and Surabaya. Stayed in Garuda Plaza Hotel, a reasonably good hotel with room rates about RM 120.00 per night. Its great price for a four star hotel. Great accessibility to all places because there are a lot of 'beca' (rickshaw) just outside the hotel which would take us places for a cheap fare. Please ensure with these rickshaw drivers you always bargain the price before you start your trip.
Today went mostly visiting places and temples. Among the places covered are: 
- Sri Maha Mariamman Temple 
- Annai Velangkani Church 
- Medan Sikh Temple 
- Grand Mosque 
- Kesawan Square 
- Sun Plaza 
- Medan Plaza 
- Kampung Keling 
- Sri Kaliamman Temple 
- Thandayuthapani Temple 
- Merdeka Square

I knew there was a Mariamman Temple in Medan, but never heard of thie Thandayuthapani Temple. Thank you Venoth for showing us this temple. You have no idea as to how you have made my day here. Thank you & Vanakkam.
