The original temple structure at Killiney Road was in the path of a proposed railway line which was to run from Tank Road to the Causeway in Woodlands. As such, the local municipal railway authorities negotiated with the temple’s trustees and bought over the temple’s land for the purpose of constructing the new railway lines.
