A rich tapestry of pomp and colour marked the consecration of the intricately carved rajagopuram, or a royal tower, at the Hindu Temple in the Canning Vale suburb of Perth. It was a moment of pride for the 8,000-odd Hindu community in the state during the consecration on Sunday. Australia is home to Hindus not only from the Indian sub-continent, but migrants from Singapore, Malaysia, Fiji and South Africa.
