Sri Murugan Temple - Eastham

London Sri Murugan Temple located is in Eastham, London.
A gorgeous Temple !!!

We grabbed the temple timings from their website

The temple is open from 8.00am to 12.30 pm in the morning and 5.00 PM - 8.00 PM in the evening.
We planned to make it during forenoon.
We took our own time and made it by 1.30 PM. I wasn't ready to see a door-locked-temple.

Surprise was on my way ! The temple was open and we made a good dharshan.

Later we heard that most of the temples in London are open throughout the day. The timings generally denote the pooja timings.

External View - Isn't it amazing !


One more shot

Murugar, Vinayagar , Ayyappan, Chandiran, Sooriyan, Durga Devi, Bhairavar, Natarajar, Shivalingam, Dhakshinamoorthy, Navagraham, Anjaneyar, Perumal, Lakshmi and what not !

We had a peaceful time in the temple. We were offered with sweet pongal as prasadam.

Temple is Very neat and clean.

From Eastham tube station take Bus 147 towards Ilford and disembark at Church Road stop (around 5th stop).
The temple is just infront of the Bus stop.

Hi Seec,
Yesterday as I was viewing the Murugan koil, power went off.I really love your travel blog. It has so much useful information for people who like to travel by themselves and not with tour operators(like my family)

SeeC said...

So nice of you Latha. Thanks for your comments.
Travelling by yourself is quite expensive especially when it comes to time. You need to spend lot of time in researching about the place. Leaves more responsibility on you. Going via operators has its own adv and disadv.

I have been here a few times and everyone is very very friendly and welcoming. The interior has several shrines/alters to different gods and has a very calm serene atmosphere. The exterior as you can see is quite fantastic. Well worth a visit if you are in the area.
