About Ayyappa Seva Sangham

In the 1970’s there was an increase in the Indian immigrant population. During those days, they did not have a place here, to assemble and pray, like we do in India. Even though the Hindu Temple Society in Flushing was established in 1977, Ayyappa devotees still felt a vacuum. Finally, in 1991, Ayyappa Seva Sangham was formed to take in to consideration the wishes of the growing number of devotees.

Devotees who have been to Sabarimala in India but could not continue to go there due their move to North America, consider SSVT Ayyappa Shrine as the “Sabarimala of the West.” Devotees climbing 18 steps at SSVT follow the same rigorous austerities of Ayyappa Vratham.
