London Sri Mahalakshmi Temple’s first mahakumbabhisegam was performed during 1990. Since then numerous devotees have attended the temple, participated in Poojas and have been obtaining the blessings of Sri Lakshmi Narayanar and other deities. The number of devotees have steadily increased and the current site cannot accommodate all the devotees comfortably. With the blessings of Sri Lakshmi Narayanar we applied to construct a new Temple at 241 High Street North and Newham council has granted consent for building a new temple to provide more facilities. New temple internal area will be approximately three times bigger than the current temple.
The new temple building will be based upon the application of sustainable technologies. It will be a concrete construction with granite flooring, central heating, central air-conditioning, air-quality management with appropriate air-exchanges, wash room with baby changing room and modern facilities.
Chola - style Temple
Garpagraham and other Mandapams have been sculpted in India in white granite by the eminent sculptors of India. The construction of the whole temple and Rajagopuram entrance in Chola style, will be under the direct supervision of Padmashri Silpakalamani Muthiah Sthapathi, the famous Hindu Temple architect of India.
As you can see this is a very sacred project providing more facilities to the devotees and we all have a life time opportunity to participate. We kindly request you to contribute generously towards the above project and if possible, please encourage your friends to do so too. Kindly donate either by standing order from your bank account or as one-off donations at the Temple office as cash, cheque or card payments. You can also donate via the temple website http://www.srimahalakshmitemple.net
The Board of Trustees will engrave all the names of the devotees who donate more than £1200 pounds for the new Temple project.
We are requesting your enormous support to the above sacred project by giving a loan as interest free or low interest to the Temple. For more information please contact the temple office (0208 5525 082). Any kind of contribution to this sacred project will be appreciated.
