About Surabhi Temple
In this context, it must be added that the Surabhi community is fully aware that their present recognition and eminence are due as much to the sweat and labour of so many generations from their forefathers of the distant past to the present members as to the indisputable element of the divine influence. While immortalising the techniques as a tribute to the art which has ensured their sustenance over the decades, they have embarked on the construction of a temple-complex to signify their worldly acknowledgement of the divine blessings which have been responsible for their being what they today are. The main temple is for the Sri Abhaya Anjaneya Swami, who happens to be specific deity of their group. The complex also includes separate shrines for Sri Kasi Visweswara, Sri Raja Rajeswari, not to mention the Navagrahas, with a plinth area of about 3000 square feet in a site of 1200 square yards. Another distinctive idea is the development of Nakshathra Vanam, an arboretum consisting of 27 different species of trees to be identified with the 27 stars of the Indian astrology, and this garden is located inside the precincts of the temple-complex now under construction. The place is envisaged as an epitome of genial serenity to all the devotees and visitors.
This is a very big project, in fact, too big for the group to afford, in financial terms, that is. They have put into it everything they can, in cash and kind; and although the major, integral part of the project is finished, the peripheral aspects are awaiting completion. What has so far been accomplished is through the funding from within the Surabhi groups, and they are now at the end of the road. With the starvation of the required funding, the project is going on by fits and starts, and the inauguration of the complex, which was originally scheduled for 22nd July 2018, is postponed; in order to ensure it to be in as near future as possible, the Surabhi group is seeking financial support to expedite the execution of the remainder of the project. So we appeal to all the benevolent members and solicitous devotees around the globe to think of some donation in this divine cause according to their individual identification with it.
For a shower of heavenly blessings by the Almighty . . .
