Sri Sai Easwaram Baktha Samajam – Shirdi Sai Baba temple in Perambur,Chennai

Sairam friends,

One of my Sai friend requested me to post about this Temple in StarSai.com and I realized its good to have a beautiful website for Temples around the world. Sai inspired me to create a website for Temples before few years but it became a relationship site eventually and after many years am happy presenting TemplesLamp.com to Sai devotees.

So here’s one of the first Shirdi Saibaba temple for you to have darshan

Sri Sai Easwaram Baktha Samajam – Shirdi Sai Baba temple in Perambur,Chennai

I believe this Shirdi Sai Baba temple is inspired by Sai as incarnation of Lord Shiva,hence the name Sri Sai Easwaram.  I don’t have much details about the temple but as of August 2013, they seem to do some extension of the temple and are looking for contribution. So if you live in Chennai, around this area, Kindly visit the temple and donate what you can afford.

All Photos are presented from Official website of Sri Sai Easwaram Temple located in Perambur, Chennai.

So lets first start with Lord Ganesha beautifully garlanded with Jasmine flowers and Pink Roses.

Siddhivinayak Temple, Mumbai

Aum Ganeshaya Namaha

Sairam friends,

Since its auspicious to start a work with Lord Ganesha, I wish to have Siddhivinayak Temple in Mumbai as the first Temple in TemplesLamp. Contents courtesy of Wikipedia authors and Photos from devotee. Thank You.

The Shree Siddhivinayak Ganapati Mandir is a Hindu temple dedicated to Lord Shri Ganesh. It is located in Prabhadevi, Mumbai, Maharashtra.[1] It was originally built by Laxman Vithu and Deubai Patil on November 19, 1801. Though it is one of the richest temples in Mumbai, the current generation of Patil is staying in state of despair near the temple.

The temple has a small mandap (hall) with the shrine for Siddhi Vinayak (“Ganesh who grants your wish”). The wooden doors to the sanctum are carved with images of the Ashtavinayak (the eight manifestations of Ganesha in Maharashtra). The inner roof of the sanctum is plated with gold, and the central statue is of Ganesha. In the periphery, there is a Hanuman temple as well.

Siddhivinayak is well known as “Navasacha Ganapati” or “Navasala Pavanara Ganapati” (‘Ganapati bestows whenever humbly genuinely prayed a wish’ in Marathi) among devotees.

History of Siddhivinayak Temple

Consecrated on 19 November 1801, the original structure of the Siddhivinayak Temple was a small 3.6 m x 3.6 m square brick structure with a dome-shaped brick sikhara. The temple was built by the contractor Laxman Vithu Patil. The building was funded by a rich Agri woman named Deubai Patil. Childless, Deaubai built the temple so that the Lord should grant children to other barren women.

Ramakrishna Jambhekar Maharaj, a disciple of the Hindu saint Akkalkot Swami Samarth, buried two divine idols in the front of the presiding deity of the temple on the orders on his guru. As prophesied by Swami Samarth, after 21 years after the burial of the icons, a mandar tree grew at that spot with a svayambhu Ganesha in its branches.

The 2550 sq m temple complex had two 3.6 m Deepamalas, a rest house and living quarters for the caretaker. It had an adjoining lake 30 x 40 sq. m. in size on the eastern and southern side of the temple. The lake, dug by Nardulla in the early 19th century to counter the scarcity of water, was filled up in the later years and the land is now not part of the temple complex.

Around 1952, a small Hanuman shrine was built in the temple complex for the Hanuman icon that was found during the road extension project of Sayani Road near Elphinstone Road. In the 1950s and 60s, the fame of the temple spread and a significant number of devotees began visiting. However, in the same period, the owner of the plot sold some of the temple land, reducing the complex area. After 1975, the number of devotees increased dramatically.
