Happy New Year 2020 greetings to all our Members and Devotees.
Looking back at the year 2019, we had an amazing journey with significant achievements. The work we did laid a solid foundation for great success, which will help our vision come true.
Last year, we established an organizational structure with a dedicated and talented leadership team comprising of volunteers from various backgrounds, experiences, and interests.
We inaugurated the temple initiative with a major event on May 27th, 2019. Thousands of people attended the event, making it a grand success. Thavathiru Kundrakudi Adigalar visited the temple site at Moncure, NC and blessed the temple project. Since then we have conducted multiple religious, fundraising, and health and wellness related events at RTP.
We have more than a million dollars pledged for the temple, and many more donors have expressed interest and offered help and support to build Phase I of the temple.
We receive calls regularly from all over the country from within and out-of-state asking about the temple and its progress. We are close to completing our perimeter survey and are in the early phase of infrastructure, roads, and utilities approval from the county. We will keep you posted as and when we get these approvals from the county and of any other significant milestone achievements.
Our initial estimate for our Phase I construction is around 3 million US dollars. Please take a few minutes to talk to your friends and relatives in the US and outside about our unique vision and do request their support and donations. Donations in any currency are welcome and will help us to build CMT one brick at a time.
We are looking for founding donors and mega-donors to support our project. If you know anyone who is interested to be a part of it, please reach out to us.
Let us continue the amazing journey together to realize our vision for the Carolina Murugan Temple.
We once again thank you for your continuous support and for the donations to the temple.
Let Lord Murugan bless you and your family with health, wealth, prosperity, and happiness.
Looking forward to seeing you all at the Thai Poosam Festival.
