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 Shiva lingam was used for tying cows at Kadambadi village near Mahabalipuram and its temple was buried under the ground with the granite stone scattered all around. In 2013, a proper temple was built and is being taken care very sincerely by a farmer. Now, the front mandapam is being constructed. Though the significant part of it is being funded by an adiyar, some additional funds are required to make the mandapam complete in all respects.
Also, the bairavar is standing here without any roof. The bairava bakthas can get a chance of putting Him in a proper shrine.
I used to do my little contributions now and then and so you can be sure of the authenticity.

A Shiva temple at Therkunam in the Thindivanam – Pondicherry route is under construction with the efforts of villagers and Sivanadiyars.
I made my first visit on Nov 2018 but nothing happened for about 2 years but now things started moving and the temple is progressing.
Any help would be highly appreciated.

Ennayiram – Brahmmadesam – Esalam near Villupuram – Gingee is the region where the biggest Veda University existed and both Shaiva and Vaishnava traditions flourished during Chola regime. Ennayiram Sri Lakshmi Narasimha Swamy temple is where the longest title inscription (மெய்க்கீர்த்தி) for Rajaraja Chola was found and excavated along with other Chola bronzes. The inscription actually runs to 80 lines along the 3 sides around the sanctum sanctorum, but only lines from 54 to 80 are unearthed now and lines 1 to 53 are still deep under the ground.
In the place where 1000s of people learnt Vedas, a Veda padashala is coming up for all – Kshatriyas, Brahmins and Vaisyals – as per Sri Ramanuja’s principle. People can participate in the kainkaryam.
