Malaysia's oldest Hindu temple portrayed on stamp for the first time
Kuala Lumpur, Aug. 23 (ANI): Malaysia's oldest Hindu temple - the Sri Maha Mari-amman temple-has been given the honour of being the first ever to be portrayed on a postage stamp.
According to The Star, Malaysian Indian Congress (MIC) president S. Samy Vellu launched the stamp on Sunday to commemorate the temple's sixth consecration ceremony to be held today.
The ceremony is held once every 12 years.
The ceremony was to celebrate the completion of the temple's upgrading work every 12 years and to re-energise the power of the temple, said its information officer B. Vivekananda.
Founded in 1873, the temple, which was originally located near the Kuala Lumpur railway station was moved to the current place in Jalan Tun H.S. Lee in 1885. It is credited with having 242 idols on its gopuram (gateway). (ANI)
