There will be a Maha Kumbabishega on Sunday 12th Dec 2010. All hindus are invitedĀ to this event.

Arulmigu Maha Muthu Mariamman Thevasthanam is a Hindu temple located in Kopisan Baru, Gopeng in the state of Perak, Malaysia. The original temple was built in 1962 and it was known as Kaliamman Kovil. It was built on a land of 57,860 square feet which was donated by Gopeng Berhad.

In 1964, renovations were made to place Goddess Mariamman as the principal deity. This renovation works were led by Mr Suppaiyah and assisted by Mr Dorai, Mr Periasamy, Mr Marugamuthu, Mr Nallapiravi and Mr Sangkaran. The contractor was Mr Arjunan. On 22 September 1967, the temple was registered as Sri Muthumariaman Kovil.

In year 2000, the temple land was gazetted but unfortunately the temple land area was reduced to 30,797 square feet. The Goddess Kaliamman and the left hall had to be relocated due to the reduction of the temple land size. The temple committee considered a proposal to relocate the Goddess Kaliamman and the hall in the existing temple building. However, the committee found that the proposal was not suitable due to lack of space in the existing temple building. Therefore, the temple committee came up with a plan to build a new building to replace the existing temple.

The ground breaking ceremony for the new temple was held on the 10 December 2006 and construction work commenced soon after. On 4 May 2009, the temple was renamed as Arulmigu Maha Mariamman Thevasthanam. This temple is currently complete and being prepared for the Kumbabishekam ceremony on 12th December 2010.
