Abstract This article concentrates on the different forms of “Hinduism” practiced by diaspora communities in Manila, North Jakarta and Cologne. It is obvious that the temples of these communities differ from other Hindu Mandirs, as these communities not only share common ideas with Sikh people in the diasporic surroundings, but also partly “share” temples. Some historically based reasons for this practice are offered. Studying these three communities in a comparative perspective also offers material for further studies of diaspora issues within Hinduism.
