The 10 million Malaysian Ringgit octagonal-shaped multi-storey unique temple with 16 chatris (ornate dome-shaped pavilions) is set to become a state landmark and the first of its kind. The temple is receiving final touches before the “kumbabeseigam” (consecration ceremony) that is to be held tomorrow.

Established by International Society for Krishna Consciousness (ISKCON), the temple also proposes to instruct devotees on yoga, chanting, spirituality, etc.; run an education center; provide free vegetarian food and include a Srila Prabhupada Gallery.

The temple was envisioned by the society’s founder, CC Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, during a visit to Malaysia in 1971. ISKCON Malaysia, launched in 1980, now has over 20 registered branches and over nine preaching centers.
