SUBANG JAYA: The Sri Varatharajah Perumal Temple here received RM12,000 in financial assistance from the state in conjunction with Deepavali last Saturday.
“It is the second year that the state has given us money and we are very appreciative of the gesture,” said temple president R Subramani.
The temple received RM 20,000 last year. This year’s aid will be used to pay for renovations.
Subramani said the temple wanted to build a Rajagopuram, an elaborate entrance usually found with larger Hindu temples, which will cost an estimated RM1.2 million.
“It is our main goal, but we may have to deal with some of our local issues first, such as a poor pedestrian crossings and unpaved roads,” said Subramani.
He received the cheque from Hannah Yeoh during a simple ceremony.
The Subang Jaya state lawmaker said the donation was inclusive of RM2,000 from her allocation, while the rest was from the state.
