Hindu temple’s R21-mln value raises concerns

2008-03-19 00:00

Trustee and treasurer of the Nohar Road Vedic Mandir in Northdale, Harry Maikoo, had to sit down to get over the shock of discovering that the Hindu religious centre has been valued at a whopping R21 million in the city council’s new valuation roll.

The Mandir was built more than 35 years ago with the help of donations from community members. The building is a basic structure with standard doors and windows. It consists of a hall and two rooms leading off one side. It recently received a lick of blue and white paint, so stands out brighter than the surrounding properties.
