Ms JODI McKAY (Strathfield) (16:01): I bring to the attention of the House the opening of the Sydney Durga Temple in Regents Park. The temple pays homage to the three female Hindu deities: Goddess Durga, Goddess Sariswati and Goddess Lakshmi. The temple's inauguration is a significant milestone, as it is one of only a few temples of its kind outside India and the first in Australia. The Sri Durgadevi Devasthanam Sydney makes an important contribution to our area, and I recognise its efforts as we celebrate the vibrant cultural diversity of Sydney. I proudly represent a large Hindu community in the electorate of Strathfield, with many devotees regularly attending prayers at the Durga Temple. I congratulate the temple committee, including Mr Mahendran Ratnam, on the opening of the temple, as well as devotees who have contributed to raising funds for the temple. I look forward to supporting the committee long into the future.
