Here are some temples that are undergoing renovation and need the attention of the devotees… It is not a matter of how much we give but it’s a matter of our participation however small it is.
A temple is coming up for an ancient lingam found on the roadside at Cheptpat (not the one in town) in the Manimangalam – Sriperumpudhur road. Pls refer my blog article
The temple is coming up very well with contributions from many devotees. The villagers themselves are contributing in a big way by way of money and labour. Still it needs some strong push to keep it going uninterrupted. Major money is required for the labour for the Sthapathy.
I am personally part of the team and so I make a personal request to my blog friends to contribute however small it is and participate in this holy task. You will be supporting a village that has a strong faith in Hinduism and saving it from any religious conversion attempts. There is no temple account created as such and so you can contact any of the following people:

TAPAS TRUST, SRI CHATHURVEDHA GANAPATHI VIDHYASHRAM
We are happy to share that a new Vedha patasala is coming up in Athur village – situated in the banks of river Palar, enroute Chengelput and Kanchipuram, under the care of Tapas trust – www.tapastrust.hpage.in. This has been conceptualised with blessings of acharya swamigal of both Kanchi as well as Sringeri. A two storey building has been dedicated with a capacity to accommodate upto 30 young boys. Also, there is already a functioning Goshala with 3 pairs of cows and a male calf inside the Patashala campus.
As Kanchi maha periyavaa has said there are two parts to Veda rakshanam –
(1) practice by self and
(2) supporting the vedha patasalas (oral tradition of learning in Guru sishya mode) and supporting the Vedha Vidhwans.
We would like to invite all asthikas with interest in Vedha Rakshanam to join us in our efforts and any contribution in cash and / kind are most welcome.
