CMT Leadership Update

Dear Devotees and Members,

With the blessings of Lord Murugan, our efforts to build the temple are progressing very well. Our goal is to open the Phase I temple (Bala Aalayam) before Dec 2021. 

We stepped up our campaign to increase awareness about our temple initiatives by conducting on-site and virtual events. We celebrated the Panguni Uthiram festival and completed our second plant sale at Morrisville, NC.

Starting from May 2021, we will be conducting weekly on-site yoga for all ages. Please invite your family and friends to attend this free yoga event. After the event, attendees can walk CMT Greenway to explore the natural temple site at Moncure, NC.

We continue our appeal to all of you for additional donations and support to fund the Phase I construction. We still need about 180K additional equity to get the construction loan. Any small donation will be of big help to us to get a loan from the bank soon.

We hear a lot of good happenings from our members. Good things happen when you are part of Carolina Murugan Temple. Please reach out to me ( if you have any questions about our initiatives and plan.

Let Lord Murugan bless you and your family with health, wealth, prosperity, and happiness.

With Best Regards,
CMT Leadership Team
