Sri Maha Mariamman Temple in Bangkok
The Sri Maha Mariamman Temple, located on the Silom Road, is the most important Hindu temple in Bangkok. The Sri Maha Mariamman Temple was built in 1879 by immigrant workers from Tamil Nadu in India. One of the side streets near where the temple is located, Soi Waiti, is named after the leader of the group of Tamil who built the temple, Vaithi Padayatchi. The area around the temple also has lots of businesses run by Indians making this part of Silom Road a small Indian enclave in the business district of Bangkok.
The temple features Southern Indian architecture including a 6 metre high gopura tower over the main entrance. The temple is dedicated to Sri Maha Mariamman, who is the Hindu Goddess of rain and curing diseases. Sri Maha Mariamman is one of the most important of the many Hindu gods and goddesses for the people of Tamil Nadu. The temple also features statues of Ganesh, Shiva, Krishna, Vishnu, Lakshmi and half a dozen other Hindu deities.
The Sri Maha Mariamman Temple is open every day from 05:00 to 20:00 and admission is free. Non-Hindus are allowed inside although they are required to take their shoes off and photography inside the temple is prohibited, with police officers permanently on duty at the temple enforcing this rule.
