Annadanam, meal for the masses, organised for 3000 people in Brisbane
On the New Year Day on January 1, live Darshan was held at Selva Vinsyakar temple in Brisbane, with Annadanam (meal for the poor) organised for 3000 people.
For the last 10 years, few friends and families from Northern suburbs of Brisbane, Australia, have been offering Annadanam (Food) to devotees of Sri Selva Vinayakar Temple on New Year’s Day, and it has now become a significant event in the temple’s calendar.
After the special Puja between 9-10 am, over 3000 meals were cooked in the temple’s premises and served to devotees, who joined the lunch in the temple at #4915-4923, Mt Lindesay Highway, South Maclean, Queensland-4280.
Similar to the Hindu temples in India, Selva Vinayakar temple is also situated in the midst of areas of natural scenic beauty, in proximity to the Logan River at South Maclean, an area of prevailing peace and inspiration to the devotees visiting this temple.
Selva Vinayakar temple is built according to traditional Indian style in conformity with ancient Sitpa Sastra and Agamas. A beautiful tower (Gopuram) and ornamental icons were also constructed by temple builders and sculptors invited from South India.
