We would like to inform you that current construction at our temple has been progressing as planned. You might have seen the progress of construction work when you visit the temple.
As communicated before the total expenditure for Stage 2 construction is estimated to be $ 206,741 which includes the construction of the roof for the outdoor Buddha statue, installing a concrete slab, an extension of the existing roof with relevant alterations/replacements, structural steelwork, gutter /ceiling work, flooring, storm water, plumbing and electrical work etc.
As you are aware, the fund-raising projects that have been organised to fund this project had to be cancelled/postponed due to the prevailing situation in the country.
Moving forward we estimate that we would need a further sum of approximately $ 70,000 to complete the contracted work. This amount has been calculated considering the current financial position of the temple.
We cannot emphasize more that meritorious deeds of such magnitude would not be accomplished without your generous donations. Whilst greatly acknowledging those who have already contributed to this highly meritorious task and accumulated immense merits, we appreciate many others who are looking forward to the opportunity of donating towards this noble cause at this very crucial time.
We also take this opportunity to greatly appreciate and thank you for the generous donations you offered at the time the new temple premises was purchased about 5 years ago.
