  • Thats a great news Sir!!! Thanks for sharing...
    Thangalin IraiPani thodara, ellam valla iraivanai prarthikkiren....
  • Dear Jothimalai & Friends,

    thanks for sharing.. feeling relieved for the time being.

    In this connection, a detailed article / representation by Dr. Kudavoil Balasubramanian in dinamalar and the Hindu need to be acknowledged.

    Advocate Mr. Ramesh brought this to the attention of Dr. Swamy who also contacted NHAI authorities.

    Secretary to TN Government ( HR & CE / State Archaelogy) has represented to the NHAI stating that though there was earlier ( 50 years back) notification, the process for actual Declaration of the Temple as protected Monument is being initiated.

    Director State Archaeology has rendered necessary help in this regard.

    Like Panayapuram ( Rajendra I's sons built this Siva temple near Villupuram in memory of his Anukki Nagai Paravai of Thiruvarur - ref group discussions we had earlier ) - which was saved, this is another Temple which is now saved.

    And the untiring efforts of the Villagers, Panchayat Presidents and Heritage enthusiasts in and around Kumbakonam - cutting across party lines have rendered remarkable support.

    And the Media - particularly the Hindu ( Trichy Edition) and the Dinamalar for serving the cause of Heritage preservation !!

    Today Times of India reported another case of ruining in the guide of renovation : Puliccad temple !!

    Our efforts need to be carried out again and again..
