Temple opens doors after RM1.5mil facelift

A magnificent Hindu temple in Seremban, Negri Sembilan, opened its doors to devotees after a consecration ceremony held early last month. 

The temple with splendid architectural design is brightly lit and easily noticed even from a distance. 

Sri Maha Raja Rajeswarar temple went through renovation works some years ago and was completed recently at the cost of RM1.5mil. 

Donors as far as the United States, Belgium, Scotland, Australia and Indonesia contributed to the building fund. 

The temple was founded in 1917 by workers at a site where they noticed a ray of light while clearing a dense jungle for a rubber plantation. 

The workers erected a zinc shed and began praying at the site. 

The shed was replaced by a concrete building in the 1970s through the effort of a female devotee. 

A decade later, the estate was bought over by a housing developer who decided to present the land, on which the temple is sited, to the devotees.
