We attended Vinayagar Chaturthi prayers today morning at Klang’s Sree Selva Vinayagar Temple (their website is here), along with about 150 people or so. Many carried paal kudam in the morning. I think we last went to this temple 2 years ago. The prayers ended at around 11am. There was an auction of mangoes which were kept at Lord Vinayagar’s tusk for last two days. Not sure who bought it as we didn’t stay long after the prayers ended.

Quite some time back, there were some issues with the relocation of staff quarters (JKR or KTM, can’t remember).

Today, the temple is surrounded by huge double storey house project. There’s barely space for parking. I wonder how the housing project was approved.

The temple is expected to have its kumbhabhishegam in 2012, and I think its going to be nightmare for those who bought their houses there.

I think it would create unnecessary friction especially when the house occupants are non-Hindus. Yeah, surely they bought the house with full knowledge that the temple exists there (its registered and official temple!), but you know how things work in Bolehland. If some influential people or those from certain race start to make noise, it will be problem regardless who was there first. The housing project should have not be given permission to proceed so close to the temple. I think its the fault of MPK for approving the project.
