Annual Prayer at Om Shri Marathadi Mariamma Alayam

I visted the annual prayer ceremony of Om Shri Marathadi Mariamma Alayam. Madam Kalai, our KEADILAN Women wing committee member is now the current caretaker.

It is now sitting at the site of JKR quarters, which was relocated to Rawang back in 1990. The actual location is at the edge of DUKE highway entrance.

Putting aside the ownership dispute, the shrine had been around since 1940s. I had a chance to speak to Mathi, descendant of the original founder to understand the history of the once-huge Indian settlement in this area.
