ONE of inner George Town’s Unesco-listed heritage landmark, the Arulmigu Sri Maha Mariamman Temple, unveiled a new colourful structure for its fifth Maha Kumbabishegam (consecration ceremony).

Chants of ‘Om Shakti!’ resounded along Queen Street when the chief priest performed the abishegam (pouring of holy water) at the temple’s goburam (main dome) at 10am on Sunday.
