Sri Selva Vinayagar Temple is one of the few Temples which conducted a full scale Thiruvilla the same year the Temple started in 2004. Every year, during the summer or autumn months, a 28 day festival takes place at the Temple for Pillayaar (Lord Ganesh). The 25th day consists of a Chariot festival pulled along the roads of Ilford, and attended by thousands of devotees. Following the completion of the renovation project, the Chariot procession will once again take place so that Pillayaar may reach out to the people at their homes and bless them.
The Temple also celebrates Amman Thiruvilla and Murugan Thiruvilla every year. Should you wish to take part in any of the Thiruvillas, in any way, please contact the Temple office.
We are always looking for more volunteers at the Temple. Should you wish to devote time to the Temple, please provide us with your contact details.
