Singapore: Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong attended along with some 40,000 and four ministers at a 164-year-old Hindu temple’s reconsecration ceremony here, following the completion of its SGD 4.5 million restoration work.

Hindu to the iconic Sri Srinivasa Perumal Temple in Little India will now be able to see the temple in its fully restored glory with the completion of its restorations.

The 164-year-old temple – one of the oldest in Singapore – was re-sanctified in a consecration ceremony known as Maha Samprokshanam, which is done once every 12 years.

Holy water from the gadams (sacred vessels), which carry divine powers of Hindu deities, was sprinkled on the nine pinnacles of the temple and the statue of deity Sri Srinivasa Perumal, also known as Lord Vishnu, within the temple’s main sanctum.

“This 164-year-old temple has been undergoing renovations for the last 1.5 years to prepare for its re-consecration, which takes place every 12 years,” the prime minister tweeted last night of the iconic Sri Srinivasa Perumal Temple in the Little India precinct.

Some 40,000 Hindu attended the consecration ceremony, held on an auspicious date from the Hindu almanack. Although the sanctification started only at around 10 AM, many had begun gathering at the temple grounds from as early as 6 AM.

The ceremony was touted as the most significant event on the Hindu this year and was witnessed by Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong, who had just returned from London.

This is the first PM Lee has visited a Hindu consecration ceremony since he assumed office in 2004.

Also present were Minister in the Prime Minister’s Office Chan Chun Sing, Minister for Culture, Community and Grace Fu, Minister for and Industry (Industry) S. Iswaran, and Senior Minister of for and Communications and Information Janil Puthucheary.

Built in 1854, the Sri Srinivasa Perumal Temple was declared a national monument by Singapore’s Preservation of Monuments Board in 1978.
