    His idea was those who may not be able to visit Malaysia to worship the deity. Now, people can come to Salem to worship Muthumalai Murugan Temple.

    Sridhar, a businessman from Aathur, decided to construct a Lord Murugan temple and Muthumalai Murugan statue on his own land in 2014 It took nearly two years just to initiate the construction process process by roping in sculptor’ Tiruvarur Thiyagarajan, who constructed the Murugan statue in Malaysia in 2006.

    Finally, consecration took place on April 6, 2022, with a Kumbabisheham performed in the presence of many nearby devotees. During the consecration, a helicopter was used to shower the flower petals. Annathanam arranged from the Trust to provide free prasadam.
