Marathi Gondhal for Maa Amba in Mauritius

The bulk of Indian immigration to Mauritius started in 1834, when slavery was abolished by the British colonial government to compensate the shortage of labour resulting from the refusal of the African slaves to work in the fields.Marathas from various districts were also recruited and most of these families after they were freed from their compulsary work term purchased land in Mauritius and settled there.

Mauritian Marathas have held the memories of Maharashtra, of Shivaji Maharaj and of Hindu gods and goddesses close to their heart. There are several temples run by the Marathas of Mauritius. They continue to hold Gondhals to honour Mata Amba to this day. 

Gudi Padwa, Maharashtra Day, Shivaji Jayanti and the Ganesh Chaturthi are national public holidays in Mauritius.
