Maha Uma Devi Temple  | Bangkok guide

Prepared to be overwhelmed by the clouds of incense smoke and scent of fragrant flowers

Resident Tamils built this Hindu temple in 1879 and they dedicated it to Uma Devi, Shiva’s consort, the Hindu Goddess of Mercy.

Although it is a Hindu temple, Chinese and Thai people also make offerings to her. She appears on the roof of the temple.

Scented flowers adorn the colourful walls; constant incense smoke floats in the temple’s cramped entrance and sculptures of holy images painted in lively colours cover all the towers.

Uma Devi’s street procession takes place here in October along with other Hindu self-mortification rites as part of the Navaratree Festival.

The street stalls selling Hindu religious images and Indian snacks found close to the temple, as well as the temple regulars, are as fascinating as the building itself.
