Temple authorities agree to move temple in Bangsar

KUALA LUMPUR: Temple authorities and a developer Friday reached an agreement to relocate the 80-year-old Sri Sakti Nageswari Amman temple in Kampung Haji Abdullah Hukum, Bangsar here, to a nearby place, said Deputy Minister of Federal Territories Datuk M. Saravanan.

He said the developer, SP Setia Bhd Group, which was involved in the development of Kampung Haji Abdullah Hukum, agreed to provide a 0.41ha piece of land for the temple.

Speaking to reporters after a working visit to the temple Friday, Saravanan said it was estimated that RM1.5mil was needed to build a new temple beginning in June and to be completed in 18 months.

He said he will also try to get an allocation from his ministry to build the temple. -- Bernama
