OZ province contributes USD 600,000 for Hindu temple
Melbourne (PTI): A provincial government in Australia has contributed a whopping USD 600,000 for the construction of a new Hindu temple in Perth.
Western Australia (WA) Premier Alan Carpenter donned traditional Hindu garb at the consecration of the temple in Canning Vale on Sunday.
The State Government contributed USD600,000 for construction of new Royal Tower at the temple.
The Western Australia province is home to 8000-strong Hindu community from India, Sri Lanka and Malaysia.
The Premier said the temple's stunning architecture reflected the richness and vibrancy of WA's multicultural society.
"This temple is a truly impressive testament to the hard work, devotion and faith of WA's Hindu community," he was quoted as saying by local media.
WA Hindu Association president Mukesh Mani said the temple's consecration was a highly significant moment in the Hindu community's 23-year history in WA.
"Apart from being a place of worship, the temple and cultural centre will be somewhere for free community programs, including a voluntary migrant assistance service, cultural and language classes and two radio programs in Hindi and Tamil," he said.
