Religionedit

It is found that most Tamils, irrespective of their Indian and Sri Lankan origins all tended to practice Hinduism and especially Shaivism There are two well organized Hindu temples in the country – Sidhivinayagar Kovil and the Kamatchi Amman Kovil – both in the western city of Hamm since 1984

The Kamatchi Amman Temple is arguably the most visible and best known Hindu Temple in EuropeThe annual temple festival attracts some 15,000 visitors and has become a central pilgrimage place for Tamil Hindus all over Europe1

Additionally, since the late 1980s, Tamil Hindus founded numerous temples, numbering about 25 places of worship in early 2005 The temples are situated in cellars and flats, some in former warehouses and industrial halls Apart from their religious importance for the carrying out of religious worship, life-cycle rituals and festivals, some of the temples also function as socio-cultural meeting points A few temples have started to celebrate the annual temple festival with a public procession, thus bringing the gods and Hindu tradition to wider notice1
