Sri Mahamariamman Temple,Altenwald,Saarland, Germany

February 17,2012  IST


Temple History : In the most beautiful state in the world, Saarland, is the residence of the Sri Mahamariamman temple. A patch of Far Eastern culture in the small village of Altenwald (Saar). Hidden behind the facades of the old inn, the Hindu mother goddess Sri Mahamariamman, or Amman (eng. mother), how the faithful used to call her, is revered and worshiped. The holy place is one of the first Hindu temple in Germany and the largest in the Southwest. It was built in the year 1994 by Mr. Somasundaram Aravindagos and should serve as a platform for Hindus, living in Germany. In addition, children, with Tamil roots, should be brought up with their religion and culture, so that these do not enter into oblivion.

The community includes far more than the Saarland. Pilgrims from Luxembourg and neighboring villages of France, Baden-Wuerttemberg, Rhineland-Palatinate, are coming here, to share their concerns and desires with the Mahamariamman. The temple is entirely funded by donations and gifts of the Devotees and does not receive government funding. Not only Hindus but also people from other cultures and religions visit the temple, so they can get an impression about Hinduism. Particularly school classes are interesed to visit the temple to participate in the worship and the ceremonies.

The temple in Altenwald (Saar) was dedicated to Sri Mahamariamman.Amman, which means mother, sits with a slight smile dressed in a saree and adorned with flowers in a large shrine. Many believers see this goddess as their own mother. Amman ensures prosperity, health, and is a companion in difficult days. Female believers pray to Mariamman for descendants or a good husband. The goddess in our temple has already caused some surprise to the many worshipers.
