KUALA Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) has given the Sri Muniswarar Kaliyamman temple committee five days to vacate the premises to make way for a new development project, Malaysia Nanban reported.
Hindraf information chief S. Jayathas, representing the 30-man temple committee, urged the developer to incorporate the century-old Hindu temple in the project in Bukit Nanas instead of asking the temple to relocate.
“The temple, located in Jalan Tengah, off Jalan P. Ramlee, is sited on DBKL reserve land and is the only temple for Hindus within the Kuala Lumpur business zone, also known as the Golden Triangle,'' he said.
Yes, it should be saved.
Jayathas added that the temple should be saved from demolition and given the land title.
