Thiruppani (Renovation)

Renovation progress report as on 15th March

The Balalayam of the temples at Arsha Vidya Gurukulam was conducted with religious fervour on the 30th November’2017. Subsequently the Thiruppani (Renovation) of the Temples was started on the 8th of January 2018 by the Sthapathis. The status of the renovation is briefly presented below:

1. Sri Jnana Ganapati Temple:

The new vimanam has been constructed subsequent to the complete dismantling of the old one. The plastering of the vimanam has since been completed and is awaiting the construction of figurines(images) on the vimanam. After curing of the plaster, the painting of the vimanam shall commence by 20th March’2018.

2. Sri Medha Dakshinamurti Temple:

The new vimanam has been constructed subsequent to the complete dismantling of the old one. The plastering of the vimanam is in progress and then the construction of figurines(images) on the vimanam is planned. After curing of the plaster, the painting of the vimanam shall commence.

3. Sri Narmadeshwar Temple:

The new vimanam has been constructed subsequent to the complete dismantling of the old vimanam. The plastering of the vimanam is in progress and thenceforth the construction of figurines(images) on the vimanam is planned. After curing of the plaster, the painting of the vimanam shall commence.

4. Sri Jnaneshwari Temple:

The project envisages the expansion of the sannidhi as the existing sannidhi had constraints of space hampering ease of doing daily pooja rituals, Abhishekam etc. This requires the dismantling of the front portion of stone masonary of the sannidhi , moving it forward after filling in the expanded space with stone work. At present the extension of the sannidhi is almost complete. The old vimana has been dismantled and shall be reconstructed after the sannidhi stone work is completed. This new project which was not earlier scheduled is likely to cost Rs. 5.50 lakhs.

5. Sri Kalyana Subramanya Swami Temple:

The repairs to the vimana have been completed. Repairs to the Mandapam ceiling has now been completed and painting of the Vimana and Maha-mandapam is in various stages of completion. Civil works on the top surface of the mandapam with water proofing have been completed. Granite slab is yet to be positioned on the Brahmarandhra opening in the sannidhi.

It is anticipated that the work of the Sthapathi team will be completed by April 30, 2018, after which the other civil works projects will continue and is expected to be completed in time for the Kumbhabhishekam.
