Dr Kandiah Somasundarrajah, one of the Founding Trustees of the Temple also spoke on BBC WM. He said that nearly 15,000 people had visited Tividale over the four days between Thursday, 19 August and Sunday, 22 August 2010.
He said visitors had come from places including Europe, Malaysia, India and Australia.
Dr Rajah said that it was a "very significant" ceremony for the Hindu community and the Balaji Temple which is the largest Hindu Temple of South Indian architecture in Europe.
He explained how the shape of the stone Shiva Lingam had been formed by water running over it naturally over hundreds of years.
The ceremony involved months of preparation and the Shiva Lingam has been placed in a small temple-like structure which has been hand-carved in India.
