The Sri Mahamariamman Temple was founded by K. Thamboosamy Pillai in 1873 and was initially used as a private shrine by the Pillai family. The family opened the temple to the public in the late 1920s and eventually it became an important place of worship for early Indian immigrants and is now an important cultural and national heritage.
