There is a Hindu belief that praying at the grand tower of a temple brings benefits that accrue with a million virtuous deeds. The KSST (UK) was established following the first visit to the UK by Sri Naguleswara Kurrukal in July 1989, and has helped with the reconstruction of the temple. One of the main objectives has been the manufacture of a large bell for the temple, in a foundry in UK. However following a request from Sri Naguleswara Kurrukal, emphasising the necessity for a Raja Gopuram, KSTT has embarked on a fund raising project for that purpose.
With the help of devotees worldwide there are plans to complete the 108-foot Raja Gopuram with seven storeys. The project, which began in 1982, came to a standstill after the first stage. Work was recommenced on Aani Uthiram day on the 12th of July 2005 and funds are urgently needed.
