Kuala Lumpur, Aug 3 (ANI): The Sri Maha Mariamman temple in Sungai Salak in Lukut, Negri Sembilan, has become the first solar-powered religious edifice in Malaysia.

The 100-year-old temple, located four kilometers from the main road, could not carry out its prayer sessions effectively due to electricity supply problems.

The temple committee sought the help of Yayasan MyNadi, a non-governmental organisation that advises Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak on Indian affairs, to rectify the problem.

The temple had requested for a generator or a solar panel to supply electricity, The Star reports. (ANI)
