The community had pooled their resources to buy a wooden house in 1920. When it was destroyed by fire, a new building was built. The present building, which was constructed in 1998 at the cost of RM500,000, is the largest North Indian Temple in the northern region serving the North Indian community all over the country. Aside from religious ceremonies, the temple also fulfils their social and cultural needs.
An elaborate programme has been drawn to celebrate this historic occasion. In the morning there will be a Havan, Flag raising ceremony, balloon releasing, prayers and speeches followed by lunch.
Dato’ S. Veerasingam has consented to grace the occasion. In the evening, a grand dinner will be held at the Red Crescent Hall. About 500 guests and well-wishers are expected to attend the function. Besides speeches and entertainment there will be a cake cutting ceremony and lucky draws. The objective of this grand dinner is to bring together the community.
