In March 2017 we sent an email to all our devotees about new
housing development near the temple being planned by a private
builder. Since then we have seen more builders with signs of
housing construction in the area.
Since the temple management has abandoned the idea of building a
housing facility for the seniors at the temple premises, we
would like to pass on this information to those devotees who
still would like to live near the temple.
If you plan to live near the temple, this might be the time to
visit the sites.
