Arulmigu Sree Ganeshar Temple:

Arulmigu Sree Ganeshar Temple is a Hindu temple dedicated to the Hindu deity with the elephant head. Ganesha is one of the best known deities in the Hindu Pantheon. He is the first son of the deity Shiva. His mother is the deity Parvati. Ganesha is reverred as the "lord of beginnings", "lord of obstacles", "remover of obstacles", patron of arts and sciences, and god of intellect and wisdom. Arulmigu Sree Ganeshar was constructed in 1951 by the Hindu Mahajana Sangam, the association founded by Indian waterfront workers.

It was originally known as Pillaiyar Kovil and was managed by the association, or sangam. Since then, the Arulmigu Sree Ganeshar Temple has been rebuilt twice. Its second consecration was carried out on 29 April, 1979. Today the temple is managed by the Hindu Endowment Board.
