Arulmigu Mahamariamman Temple

Arulmigu Mahamariamman Temple

The Arulmigu Mahamariamman Temple on Queen Street, George Town, is one of the oldest Hindu temples in Penang. Also known as Sri Mahamariamman Temple or simply the Mariamman Temple, it is dedicated to the Hindu deity Sri Muthu Mariamman, who has a following among the Indians of South India. The temple has its back facing Pitt Street (Jalan Masjid Kapitan Keling). Scholars believe the name Mariamman comes from two words, mari meaning power, and amman meaning mother. Sri Muthu Mariamman is considered a motherly power figure, a goddess of mercy and patron deity of the peasants of southern India. (http://www.penang-traveltips.com/mahama riamman-temple.htm)

Excellent photograph. A beautiful capture of the building and its many interesting features. Lovely colors. Very much like the angle you chose instead of direct front view. It gives the scene a broader more lively affect. Like the bird captured in the sky above. Seems a double meanning: the bird is a fine element for what it is and for its meaning as a soaring spirit above the temple. Like the foregound with the man seated. This gives scale to the temple, and adds a human, down to earth perspective also. An excellent composition over all. And, thank you for taking the time to add your fine narrative. Excellent photography.
