Board to take over management of temple

THE Sri Mangala Nayagi Amman Temple in Central Seberang Perai will now be managed by the Penang Hindu Endowment Board (PHEB) following a High Court order, Makkal Osai reported.

PHEB executive director Datuk M. Ramachandran said the temple matter went to court after the committee was deregistered by the Registrar of Societies (ROS).

He said the Penang High Court also ordered former temple committee chairman Sekar Kandasamy to complete the handover process to PHEB witnessed by his lawyer and the ROS.

The report also mentioned that the court awarded RM10,000 in costs to PHEB.
