The Hindu Temple serves Indian families who live in the city, but most of the devotees worshiping Her are actually Saigonese non-Hindus who believe in the power of Mariamman. The temple is regarded as a holy site and attracts thousands of people every week.
Surrounding the outer walls of the temple are about twenty statues of Gods such as Mahavishinu, Kaliyamman, Birman and Paramasivam. Also in District 1, there are two other Hindu Temples, Sri Thendayutthapani Temple and Sunbramaniar Temple. These endow the city with Indian features and enrich the spiritual life of Saigonese.
