Sri Maha Mariamman Temple (Bangkok-Thailand)
Sri Maha Mariamman is a popular temple known as Wat Khaek Silom. It was devoted to the goddess Uma and was built around 1879 by the Indians who lived in Bangkok and purchased the land on the Silom Road. A small pavilion was originally first built, and the community of the Indians living in the area later gave their contribution to the building of the temple. The statue of goddess Uma was set up as the main statue of the temple. There were later numerous other portraits of Hindu gods and goddesses brought from India. Every year, a festival called the Dusher or Navarath is being held in the temple since ancient times. It lasts for 10 days and is devoted to goddess Uma. During the last night of the festival, her statue is being carried along the road.
