Srivaratharaja Selvavinayakare Since 1991 you have brought Tiruvalam to bless the Tamil people residing in the Netherlands. Thus you do not have a history that is thousands of years old today.


The hardships they faced in this nation were not unimportant when they were stranded on the motherland due to the ethnic troubles that started in Sri Lanka and when they landed in Holland without recognizing where they were going. The extreme cold of the weather condition was scorching hot. Incomprehensible language overwhelms the brain. There is no Tamil connection beyond the message. They did not know Friday, they did not know Thursday, they did not know Audi, and they did not know the new moon. When I wished to pray, I found a small room in the chapel of St. Nicholas Church. Emperuman’s blessings to the devotees who were here on that day


Ganapati Temple arose in the form of Vikra in 1991 in the Tenkelter Badi of the Netherlands. 29-03-1991 On the Friday of Uttara Nakshatra in the month of Pangori, Friday, all the Tamil people living in the Netherlands collaborated as well as venerated Ganesha who was purified by the clergy according to the guidelines of vegetarianism.
The temple is committed to the deities Ganesha, Mahalaxmi, Kannaperuman, and also Valli. Ganesha fills the minds of the supporters and also gives blessings from here as a wealthy Ganesha and blesses the vegetarian and Tamil flourishing here.

Rebuilt Temple

The temple building was rebuilt in 1996 when it was repaired under the Government Building Reconstruction Program. Because of the small size of the idol of Ganesha at that time, the largest idol of Ganesha was brought from India and separate pedestals were set up for the idols like Moolamoorthy Mahalakshmi Kannaperuman as well as Ivalli Deyvanai Sametha Murugapperumana. Throughout the auspicious celebration with Lakkinam, the repeating Pratista Mahakumbapi Nshakam was performed for the Moolamurthys and the Parivarmurthys with the utmost etiquette. With the participation of several excellent Sivacharyas Featured.
