The National Highway Authority of India has finally decided not destroy part of a 1,000-year-old temple, thus rectifying what had been established at first to carry out a highway expansion project.
The shiva temple It is located in the village of Manampadi near Kumbakonam and was declared, 30 years ago by the State Department of Archeology, a protected monument.
The sections that were destined for demolition were a compound wall and several shrines. Historians, archaeologists and even inhabitants of the village itself opposed such structures having such a cruel fate, so they asked the state government and the NHAI to abandon this idea.
Now, according to various reports drawn up by the Chief Minister and the NHAI the temple has been saved from demolition Consequently, three alternatives have been established for the construction of the highway without having to alter the building, the results of which have been sent to the NHAI headquarters.
Kudavayil Balasubramanian, epigrapher and archaeologist, has said that this result will be a great tribute to honor Rajendra chola, king who will celebrate his 1000th anniversary on his coronation in 2014 and who was the one who ordered the construction of said temple. The temple maintains beautiful flora plants and can be accessed regularly for worship or festival organization, despite the fact that some of its areas are quite damaged.
I was born in Madrid on August 27, 1988 and since then I started a work of which there is no example. Fascinated by both numbers and letters and a lover of the unknown, that is why I am a future graduate in Economics and Journalism, interested in understanding life and the forces that have shaped it. Everything is easier, more useful and more exciting if, with a look at our past, we can improve our future and for that… History.
