Restoring Sri Maha Mariamman Temple In Port Dickson

Indians comprise about 29 percent of Port Dickson's population and they have a large temple in the city. Currently, it's being restored to its former glory, a glory that stretches back more than 100 years. How's the restoration going?

Outside, the covered gopuram still has a presence.


Inside the compound, all sorts of work in progress. 

Displaced sculptures, patiently waiting to be returned to their place in the temple.


Elaborate new painting, with english subtitles. Another look at the renovation.

Icon, looking wistfully at the work.
