Temple History


More Info…

This Vaishnavaite Temple was built during the year 1964 to meet the increasing number of Vaishavaite devotees around the Simpang Air Hitam area. It was planned in 1964 by a group of workers from the nearby West Country estate, JKR quarters area and Prang Besar estate.  Mr. Arunachalam and Mr. Muniandy were instrumental in the temple building process. Perhaps there may be others which we do not have records. Madam Ramayee a long term resident of West Country estate gave us some useful information regarding the origin of this temple.

The JKR workers managed to get this land, lot 851 from the state Government and the workers through the Malaysian Indian Congress (MIC) got RM 15,000 from the Selangor State Government under the administration of Menteri Besar Dato Hormat Rafie to put up the temple. JKR approved the building plans and the structure in 1967. During 1977 this area was earmarked for major development for institutions of higher learning and the Lembaga Letrik Negara training institution staffs took over the administration of the temple. Notable to mention a few names who developed the temple from 1978 are Mr. Maniam from Prang Besar estate, Dr. M.P. Krishnan, from Kajang Klinik, Mr. S. Ramanuja Muniandy and Mr. N. Padmanathan from Lembaga Letrik Negara.
