Between 6000 and 7000 Hindu devotees attended the consecration of the Muragan Temple on Sunday, showing the strength of the Hindu community in the western suburbs .

The consecration of a Hindu temple happens every 12 years, so it is a first for the Mays Hill temple, which opened in 2009.

Temple director Sinna Sundaram said the Mays Hill congregation was the largest in Australia.

Parramatta’s Federal MP, Julie Owens, helped the local Hindus bring out leading sculptors who worked on the temple.

Ms Owens said she was proud to attend the deeply religious ceremony, which calls for rejuvenation of the temple and within the Hindu community.
