“The building of this Shri Ram mandir has a lot of history behind it. Let me just say that it was the hope of many generations of Indians, not just people of this generation. This has been a struggle; this has been a hope; this has been an expectation that has been built up over hundreds of years.”

The Indian High Commissioner says that they have received positive feedback from many people across Fiji.

He says that on this occasion, all should take pride in how the Fiji Indian community has maintained its unique cultural heritage.
