KUALA LUMPUR, MALAYSIA : More than 20,000 Hindus are expected to attend the consecration ceremony of Sri Maha Mariam man Temple in Malaysia. The 105-year-old temple in Puchong, a suburb, is being reconstructed at a cost of more than US$885,000.

Temple chairman A. Sevaguru said preparations were being undertaken to ensure the temple would be ready by May 23. He said the temple’s steeple was 70-foot tall and devotees could see it from within the temple through a glass ceiling. Sevaguru said there would be six prayer sessions for the devotees to place gold and silver rice in the inner sanctum and an anointment ceremony would be a rare opportunity accorded to devotees. The temple was originally set up by South Indian contract laborers brought here by the British in 1905.
