Shiva Temple Construction

As mentioned previously a Shiva temple construction has been undertaken in the village to provide shelter to the Shiva lingam which is rumoured to be of 17th century. The original temple is supposed to have been destroyed by the Arcot Nawabs during their reign.

Since then the lingam was left open to the sky. Various reasons

are attibuted to why it is so (including some bizarre ones .. :) )

But currently with an combined effort from the village residents and our family, construction of a temple has begun which would house this lingam.

Attached below are few more snaps which would show more on the construction activities.
