The Sri Mariamman Devastanam Temple is dedicated to Shakti and is located in Segamat, in Chaah, in Malaysia. It is a Hindu temple in Bagan Luar in Penang, Malaysia. It is the largest and perhaps the oldest Hindu temple in Butterworth. The temple is dedicated to the mother deity, Amman and is the temple for the Hindu community that dwells along Jalan Jeti Lama. The area is a Hindu settlement called Kampung Benggali. There is a substantial Hindu population living in the area, and businesses such as the Sri Ananda Bharvan Banana Leaf Restaurant is a reflection of the Hindu presence. The Hindus are mostly associated with the Butterworth port. They either worked directly there, or provided supporting trades such as opening sundry shop and food outlets. The Temple is noted for its impressive gopuram which towers over the buildings in the vicinity. The Butterworth Sree Maha Mariamman temple was founded back in 1853. Ambal's idol was found by the seaside on 1853 and a small hut was built consecutively to place Ambal's idol for worship. In 1903, Ponnusami Pillai constructed a temple on the same spot and the 1st consecration ceremony (Kumbabishegam) took place. The current temple structure was built in 1980's with the consecration ceremony taking place on 1988. On 2002, after some minor renovation works, another consecration ceremony took place.
