Sri Senpaga Vinayagar Temple


We veered off East Coast Road the other day, and found ourselves on Ceylon Road where the Sri Senpaga Vinayagar Temple is situated. The Hindu temple was built in the mid-19th century.

  1. These are incredible! The temple is such a magnificent structure – and I can’t believe you’ve managed to spot the only elephant looking in a different directions!
    I love all the details that decorate the temple!

  2. wow, that is gorgeous! I love carved temples/architecture, I always am amazed at how they did it. With a chisel and a piece of rock, no less! Incredible.

    1. I am not familiar with this religion, but from what I read, the elephant is a religious and sacred symbol for Hindus. One of the most worshipped god is the Elephant God, or Lord Ganesha, which represents wisdom 🙂
