activist Lawrence Raghavendra has
built a Raghavendra Swamy Brindhavanam
Temple in Thirumullaivoyal near Chennai.
The temple will be opened to the public
from January 1st, 2010. Speaking on
this, Lawrence said that the idea
to build a temple for Raghavendra
has been there since he was an 8-year-old
boy. He added that God’s grace
ensured that he built a temple in
about seven acres of land.
According to Lawrence, he would not
invite any of his friends from the
film industry for the opening ceremony
as it would divert the attention of
the devotees who would arrive to worship
the lord on the New Year’s Day.
A five-day function will be held after
48 days for which he plans to invite
all his friends from the tinsel town.
