Thirugnana Sambanthar Tapovanam - beautiful temple near #Sriperumbudur Fully demolished! Why is this allowed? 63 Nayanmars, Durgai Amman, Vinayakar (black stone sculptures) were all debris after the destruction. Those that remained after the assault by 3 JCBs were lined up on
the floors. Beautiful colourful Vimanams, roof tops and large Naga statue which once provided back drop of Lingam was broken and was upside down. At every stage, local devotees who pleaded were told they will not demolish main temple and garbagriha, while they were going about
demolishment of every Sannathi one by one. Devotee women who stood ground were pushed and threatened of arrest, so were the children. Entry to the road leading to the temple was cordoned with heavy police deployment and villagers who wanted to rush were threatened and driven away
