Sri Maha Veera Hanumantha Temple, Butterworth, Penang

A gurukolam based temple, the Sri Maha Veera Hanumantha Temple locates itself in Kampung Benggali, Butterworth, Penang in a humble structure. The 45 year old temple is said to be founded by Guru Radhakrishnan, a well known artiste whom sculptured all the idols and images in the temple. As per our sharing with Mr.Balaguru Subramaniam, the current chairperson and also a founding member of the temple, many interesting stories were shared.

20 years ago, Guru Radhakrishnan provided various service offerings and spiritual consultation for visitors and devotees. But as years passed, a sense of emptiness within made him believed that the actual goal and objective of a true divine understanding and spiritual attainment may not be cultivated through its full extend if devotees only visited the temple to seek consultation, which triggered him to make a full stop in providing consultation and focus more on spiritual discovery through proper devotion.

The current chairperson shares the same goal and vision of the pioneer, which is to develop the temple's motion on a spiritual enhancement through the ultimate expression and passion towards Lord Maha Veera Hanuman. The jewel of the temple is the Bhajan team, which can be experienced every Saturday evening. The experience gained during these sessions do not only allow one to express the devotion he or she has towards the Lord, but also syncs the energy level together on a mass spiritual frequency that transcend the devotion towards a different dimension. 

During it's festival day, the Hanuman procession that unites its devotee on a conservative manner which brings back that nostalgic touch of family and community value, that strengthens one kinesis that the temple is not only a home to Lord Hanuman, but also a home to his devotees which has been translated with many miraculous events and community development.
