Tallest statue of Lord Subramaniya unveiled

KUALA LUMPUR: About 30,000 Hindu devotees and visitors came to witness the official unveiling of the country’s tallest Lord Murugan statue on Jan 29, 2006 (Sunday) and the garlanding of the golden statue.

Temple officials were now hoping to get the 42.7m statue, located at the Sri Subramaniar Temple at the foot of Batu Caves, into the Guinness Book of World Records as the tallest Lord Murugan statue in the world.

Hundreds of balloons floated into the air and a shower of flowers fell from a hovering helicopter as Works Minister Datuk Seri S. Samy Vellu officially launched the opening ceremony about 6.15 pm on Jan 29, 2006.
