Sri Selva Vinayakar Temple
4915 - 4923, Mt Lindesay Highway, South MacLean 4280
Replaced temple built in 1995
Selva Vinayakar temple is built according to traditional Indian style in conformity with ancient Sitpa Sastra and Agamas. A beautiful tower (Gopuram) and ornamental icons were also constructed by temple builders and sculptors invited from South India.
In the plan of the structure, Lord Vinayakar is accorded the main place. The vimanam (the structure that is built over the sanctum sanctorum) of this beautiful Central Shrine of Vinayakar, with its stupi, stands at a height of about 20 feet above the ground level. On the right of the Central Shrine Siva takes His abode and Abirami (Parvathi) is on the left. Maha Vishnu and Lord Murukan find their appropriate places to the rear of the Central Shrine.
The shrines of Navagrah and Vairavar are located in their respective places close to the main entrance. Images are also installed in the niches of the three walls surrounding the Central Shrine. They face the 'prakara', the path which runs round the shrine. Adjacent to the main deity, on the left of the shrine, Chandeswarar is assigned his place. On the right of Lord Siva are Nalvar (Sampanthar, Apper Sundarar and Manikkavasakar) in panchaloga (five metals) and Sri Ramakrishna in granite.
