Om Sri Maha Athi Nageswary Amman Hindu Temple at Puchong Gateway

There is an intriguing new Hindu temple under construction at Jalan Seri Kembangan, Puchong Gateway. I noticed it from the LDP highway and took a detour for a closer look.

Om Sri Maha Athi Nageswary Amman Temple

The sign outside bears the name Om Sri Maha Athi Nageswary Amman. 

Nagas are snakes that take human form and Nageswary Amman is referred to as the Snake Goddess. There is another temple with a similar name in Bangsar. It was built on the site of a snake mound and a pair of cobras inhabit the mound and guard the temple’s inner sanctum. Perhaps there is a snake nest at this site too.

Seven pillars topped with seven-headed cobras provide shelter to the deities perched below.

The temple is painted a bright yellow colour, which is an auspicious colour in Hinduism.

Ornate carvings embellish  the statues and the gopuram.

The gopuram (multi-tiered, pyramidal entrance tower) appears to have seven levels, the number seven seemingly having some significance in this temple.

Did you know? According to Hindu tradition, the marriage bond between a married couple is said to last seven lifetimes.  So if you are fed up with your wife (or husband), tough luck because you’ve got her for another six lifetimes after this one! Or maybe you’ve been married for six lifetimes already which is why you are fed up with each other.
