It is sad to note that Dr Alagappa Alagappan passed away on October 24, 2014. As we all know he built the first Hindu Temple in US – Maha Vallabha Ganapati temple in Flushing, Queens, NY. He also built other temples in US and in India also – including arupadai veedu in Besant Nagar – all under the guidances/blessings of Mahaperiyava. An ardent devotee of Mahaperiyava, great service to hinduism is now with his ishta dheivam Lord Muruga.
Here is the article from NY Times on him.
Even in his last conversation regarding NJ manimandapam project, Shri Chettiar showed lot of interest, encouraged the idea, promised to support in whatever way he could. Although he is not here to support today, I am sure the blessings will be there with all of us.
Here is the video interview that we did a while ago….
